“El Castillo” or, as it’s been circulating on Facebook, “The impact of a book.”

Happy Social Construction of Time Day! Every day is social construction of time day – but today more so than most. This post is a weekly link round-up of sociological work – by sociologists, referencing sociologists, or just of interest to sociologists. Before you go any further, make sure you check out Tressie MC’s appearance on the Daily Show and the coverage of her book in the New York Times! Ok, you did? On to the links!

This week was especially rich for sociologically relevant work, and so I’ll be posting an extra bonus round of links in the comments. Thanks especially to Mike Bader for sending along a selection of great pieces. If you have an idea for something that would fit nicely in this space, send me an email or leave a comment!

The Basics on Universal Basic Incomes

Campus Politics

Knowledge Politics

Algorithms and the New Discrimination

The Political Economy of Business

Sex, Gender, and Feminism(s)
