The second part emphasizes analytical studies of sociology focused on Brazilian urban reality, with themes pertaining to the new patterns of socio-spatial segregation and territorial division of labor; sustainable urbanization; metropolitan governance; deterritorialization and re-territorialization of productive activities; social movements; the dilemmas of urban policy in face of growing inequality, violence and exclusion.

SOC 029 SOCIOLOGY OF RACE RELATIONS

06 credits – 90 hours

Content

The main focus of the course is the recent debate on race relations. Understanding the uses and meanings of the category of “race” in the literature of social sciences in general, and of sociology in particular, may help us to understand not only the possibilities of interfaces between race, class and gender but also the difficulties to be faced in the construction of knowledge of the social that does not (dis)consider its diversity and complexity. Only by doing so will it be possible to contribute to the formulation of public policies that broaden citizenship and deepen democracy in Brazil.

SOC 030 SOCIOLOGY OF DISASTER

06 credits – 90 hours

Content

Based on a discussion of the concept of the Sociology of Disaster, this subject is aimed at analyzing how socio-environmental phenomena, represented collectively as such, disorganize and reorganize social life. The aim is to stimulate reflection about:
a) changes brought about by disasters in the concrete and symbolic plans of the daily life of those involved – such as material and human losses and changes in patterns of sociability;
b) politicoinstitutional practices that involve the ineffectiveness/insufficiency of the civil defense actions of prevention/preparedness/response; and
c) the process of the symbolic and psychosocial content reconstruction of the location. Disasters spark questions in which class, ethnic-racial, gender, and generational biases and the like are emphasized so that the reterritorialization strategies of the affected group are, in general, followed by new interpretations of social organization and of power relations, which favor changes in self-narrative.
The idea is to provide the student with minimal conceptual tools to understand that, in a sociohistorical context in which risks become central to the sociological debate and threats take on a globalizing dimension, localized vulnerability becomes nuanced not only by the indissociability of the objective and subjective dimensions of losses and redoings, but above all by multi-scale relationships of power that need to be identified in order to vocalize rights and to cope with socially produced dangers.
