SOC306 - Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination (pt. 2): "I don't see color"

SOC303 - The "Myth" of Mental Illness

EJoin the SB team as we talk about the “myth of mental illness,” a phrase coined by psychiatrist and medical sociologist, Thomas Szasz. Today we will be comparing the ideas of mental health and illness as “problems with living” to the medical model. As sociologists we are not anti-medicine or anti-doctor, but we do feel it necessary to use our perspective breakdown the essence of psychological functioning and how the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a gatekeeper.

Breakaway Episode 7 - Monster Artists: When something you love is created by a monster

We tackle an interesting dilemma that has come into the spotlight in the wake of the #MeToo movement - what are we supposed to do when we find out that the art we love was created by monster artists? From Johnny Depp to Michael Jackson to Louis CK, we discuss the various ways in which we can deal with this dilemma. As consumers, what is our responsibility to deal with these monster artists, and is that even the right question to ask?
