SOC Imagination

Activity #1

The Sociological Imagination

Begin by reading the first chapter of The Sociological Imagination:  (It is short!)–the-promise-c.-

Next, make sure you watched the Sociology Live! video (this was included in the power point lecture) explaining the sociological imagination: (about 5 minutes long)


Finally, respond to the following – be as specific as possible.  Your written response should be at least two paragraphs in length.  Note that a paragraph contains a minimum of five sentences.


  1. After completing the tasks for this assignment (the reading and video above), briefly explain – in your own words – the sociological imagination.
  2. Wright Mills argued that personal troubles can be viewed as public issues – in other words, understood in terms of large-scale patterns that extend beyond individual experience and are part of society and history. The video uses the examples of unemployment and obesity. Identify one other personal trouble that has social factors that contribute to it. Think about macro-level trends/events in society. Discuss how an issue that seems to be a personal one, can be viewed as a societal issue.
