Abstract: Reflecting on Michael Burawoy’s classificaton of sociology into professional, critical, policy, and public types, and the adoption of the latter as the theme of the ASA’s 99th Annual Meeting, in this paper I argue that the drive towards increasingly global and world-historical public sociologies may prove hazardous in the absence of a parallel emphasis on the development and practice of private inter/intrapersonal sociologies. This requires self-critical revisitation of our basic definitions and theories in sociology in order to develop unified theoretical frameworks that meet the challenges of understanding and practicing the dialectics of public and private social processes in the twenty-first century. We need to move beyond Newtonian definitions and theorizations of sociology and embrace new quantal sociological imaginations that integrally engage our macro and micro sociologies in favor of simultaneously world-historical and inter/intrapersonal frameworks. Public sociologies can not advance our theoretical and applied sociologies of what is or what can be in the absence of parallel efforts in invigorating our sociological imaginations in our private, inter/intrapersonal social landscapes. Although personal troubles can best be understood in relationship to broader public issues, the latter themselves can most effectively be addressed and resolved through the action of specific individual agencies who champion the need for broader socio-historical interpretation and change as deeply personal exercises in self-knowledge and self-liberation. As Mills reminded us, what sparks the sociological imagination is the meeting of public and private sociologies.

Abstract: Although sociology is now firmly entrenched in academe, a century ago various strands of sociology vied to define the discipline. A vibrant community-based, women-centered public sociology coexisted with academic sociology and offered an alternative vision of sociology and sociologists. Women such as Jane Addams and Caroline Bartlett Crane raised feminist concerns regarding research methods and the goals of social research. Their story, and the vast numbers of other women they represent, have largely been lost in the history of sociology. In this paper, I present an alternative version of the history of American sociology and suggest how the lost legacy of a democratic, public sociology has important implications for sociology in the 21st century.

Abstract: We use Sociology, in singular, yet we must ask ourselves if Sociologies, in plural, would not be more appropriate. By using the concept of Sociologies, we can introduce the different cultural, national, and linguistic influences which are so important for our discipline, our training, and our choice of subjects and topics. To explore this question, the following aspects of the American and French sociology will be compared and contrasted:
1) The definition of sociology and the perspectives and paradigms used in each national context.
2) The diffusion of content and sociologists presented by sociology textbooks.
3) The formal training provided by universities and the text books selected by the faculty.
4) Comparison of the sections of the American Sociological Association and the French Sociological Association.

Abstract: This paper argues for the reconceptualisation of the term ‘subculture’, as used in sociological work on youth, music, style and identity, as a reflexively articulated lifestyle strategy (Chaney, 1996). Beginning with a brief overview of the subcultural theory of the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS) and post-CCCS work, during which it is noted how criticisms of the CCCS focused on subcultural theory rather than the term ‘subculture’ itself, it is subsequently illustrated how subculture has remained a standard, and increasingly arbitrary, concept in the sociology of youth. The problems inherent in defining subculture in abstract theoretical terms, it is argued, are increased through the media’s appropriation and introduction of subculture into the public sphere which has resulted in subculture becoming a framing device for a range of youth discourses embedded in everyday life. The second part of the paper contends that if subculture is to retain relevance as a sociological concept it must begin to engage with the way in which subcultural meanings are constructed and contested by young people themselves in the context of their everyday lives.
