Abstract: As Internet use grows globally, the digital divide has shifted beyond access or no access to more sophisticated questions of skill, usage, and capital, and to new venues such as social networking sites. Do digital divides persist and accumulate across different capital-enhancing activities used on different social networking sites? The current study analyzes a context where social ties are more salient for resource access due to untrustworthy institutions, and large gaps exist between elites and non-elites. Demographic divides characterize the 31% of Armenian adults using two major social networking sites in 2013: Facebook and Odnoklassniki. Facebook users are more likely to get information, while Odnoklassniki users are more likely to engage in gaming. However, the divides in social networking sites usage are much greater than in activity use, with implications for capital enhancement and stratification.

Abstract: In this paper, I address how social-change oriented undergraduate instructors in sociology might think about balancing attention to sociology as a discipline with community-based action, by analyzing a series of tensions that arose in student journals during a seminar I taught on “Public Sociology.” I describe three themes evident in the students’ writing and seminar discussion. First, many students expressed a sense of disappointment in learning more about professional as opposed to public sociology, as they had assumed public sociology was the main preoccupation of the discipline. For some students, this led to a second theme, a desire to respect multiple types of sociology without critically examining the power structures that privilege one type over another or how those structures might affect sociology’s potential for social change. Third, some students took this pluralistic perspective one step further, arguing that debating about different types of sociology was a distraction from the more important work of social change. I consider the implications of these themes, and of the dilemmas created by balancing inward attention to the discipline with outward attention to the community, for my seminar in particular, but more importantly for sociology curricula in general and for the discipline as a whole.
