Sociology Awareness Week is coming up very soon. And it is therefore our pleasure to announce the list of events that we will run over a three day period from 16th- 18th Feb.
Knowledge, Power & Discourse
by Asst. Prof. Genaro Castro-Vazquez
Why is consulting a physician better than a healer? Why do students have to obey teachers? In using examples from daily life, this talk will introduce the construct power-knowledge as a key Sociological term. In the talk, we will disentangle the relation punishment-power-knowledge as means to control human life and societies.

Sociology is the study of society. Okay. We get that. But what is it about society that Sociologists study? What is society anyway? Bewildered? Indeed, Sociology has baffled many of us. To help us understand better what sociology is, NTUSS is proud to organize a Sociology Awareness Week.
In this sociology-packed week, we will hold exhibitions, conduct film-screenings, and invite faculty members to give talks. We will also distribute the socitees on the first day of this event and invite those who have purchased the tees to put them on during this three-day period.
Do look for our booth outside Canteen A on 16th-18th February 2009. Meanwhile, stay tuned as we will release the full event details soon. :D
