From Modernity to Postmodernity
Sociological InquiryStreaming Video - 2009
Sociologically speaking, how does postmodernity differ from modernity? This multi-section program seeks to answer that question as it evaluates sociology's relationship to an evolving societal framework. Topics such as greater personal choice, increasingly fragmented identities, multiplying uncertainties, and media saturation are considered, along with some of the contradictions inherent in the postmodern position. In addition, a case study comparing modernist views of gender and gender differences with the postmodernist view that fragments and blurs the boundaries of gender identities is included.
