Louisiana State University Sociologists Role in Society Discussion
Sociologists have long debated the role sociologists should play in society. Some argue that sociologists should be value-neutral and share the findings of their research with policymakers, while others argue sociologists should take a more active role in sociology. Leon-Guerrero discusses this as Public Sociology. Now it is your turn to weigh in on this debate.
For your original post, discuss whether you think sociologists should be focused on research and let others focus on policymaking and activism OR if sociologists should seek to conduct research with an eye on activism OR if sociologists should seek to balance research and activism.
