Today, we talk to Seth Abrutyn from the University of British Columbia. Seth teaches graduate classical theory in UBC’s sociology program, and recently caught attention on Twitter for his views about the role of classical sociology in the contemporary sociology graduate curriculum. He published a blog post on the topic here.

  1. Thanks Seth. Lots of great summaries of sociologists and good practical sense. I especially like your summary of the changing US sociology in the later 20th century. This is different from the UK sociology I got.
    Students in your class must have a good time.
    Thanks Joseph – good interview
