Age and the Reach of Sociological Imagination

Adding to the extensive collection of CWRU Sociology books, Professor Dale Dannefer’s book Age and the Reach of Sociological Imagination: Power, Ideology and the Life Course was published in August 2021. In presenting basic principles and reviewing the current state of knowledge, Professor Dannefer introduces multi-levelled social processes that shape human development and aging over the life course and age as a cultural phenomenon – organizing his approach around three key frontiers of inquiry that each invite a vigorous exercise of sociological imagination: the Social-Structural Frontier, the Biosocial Frontier and the Critical-Reflexive Frontier.

Congratulations, Professor Dannefer!
