Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course addresses an emerging area of sociological inquiry that focuses on sequences of social activity that individuals form over short periods of time. These "microsequences" reflect patterns of movement between contacts and settings. We will discuss recent work in social network analysis, economic sociology, and social psychology on factors that affect the structure of individuals' microsequences. We will also discuss the implications of microsequences for individuals abilities to synchronize and coordinate social action. Finally, we will explore techniques of social microequence analysis. After addressing some important issues regarding data collection, measurement and analysis, students will learn to examine microsequence data.
