A weekly link round-up of sociological work – work by sociologists, referencing sociologists, or just of interest to sociologists. This scatterplot feature is co-produced with Mike Bader.
This week, we haven’t got too much in our queue. So post your favorite links from the last weeks in the comments! Or, alternatively, enjoy a lazy Sunday.
- Manisha Claire, writing at the excellent JStor Daily blog, discusses how food writers tried to make salads “manly AF” in the mid-20th century.
- On the politics of bad municipal development policy, especially payoffs to lure jobs.
- “Racism as we understand it now, as a socio-political order based on the permanent hierarchy of particular groups, developed as an attempt to resolve the fundamental contradiction between professing liberty and upholding slavery.” Jamelle Bouie looks at the Enlightenment and race.
