Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with the theoretical knowledge and critical-interpretative tools to understand and analyze the processes of social change and social marginality by providing a historical and theoretical contextualization and deepening the most recent social changes that give rise to new forms of marginality.

Program

The course is divided into two parts. In the first part, the concept of social change is analyzed and the sociological theories that have focused on it are analyzed in depth. Current trends of social change are also explored. In the second part, an in-depth study on marginality is developed. The evolution of the concept of marginality is retraced and the relationship between marginality and modernization is examined, highlighting the different meaning that the concept of marginality assumes.

Extended program:

- The concept of social change;

- Sociological theories of social change: positivism, the conflictualist conception, the German school;

- Current trends of social change: political change, social change, climate change, technological change;

- The concept of marginality;

- Sociological theories of marginality: the Chicago school, the subjective approach, the systemic theory, the structural-functionalist approach;

- Relationship between marginality and modernization.

The assessment will focus on knowledge of the contents of the textbooks and any other teaching materials provided by the teacher. The ability to re-elaborate and critically argue the topics and the property of language will be particularly valued.

Evaluation criteria and parameters:

- Excellent evaluation: in-depth and articulated knowledge of the topics and authors treated; the ability to make connections between topics; the ability to develop critical reflections in support of the argument; the ability to problematize and contextualize theories at a historical level; the ability to support the arguments with anthological passages provided by the teacher in class; the ability to formulate relevant examples; the ability to use the specific language of the discipline.

- Good evaluation: a good general knowledge of the topics and authors treated; a relative critical and connecting capacity of the topics dealt with; appropriate language and the use of some specific terms of the discipline; the ability to formulate examples starting from the stimuli provided by the teacher.

- Sufficient evaluation: a purely mnemonic knowledge but which demonstrates at least a sufficient level of understanding of the topics dealt with; presence of slight gaps in the knowledge of the historical and social phenomena dealt with; limited but still understandable expression; sufficient knowledge of the specific language of the discipline.

- Insufficient evaluation: little or no knowledge of the contents and authors treated; incapacity of critical argumentation and problematization; training gaps; use of inappropriate language.
