Social forms emerge from the interdependent behavior of social actors. In this course, we will draw on the Analytical Sociology tradition to understand micro-level processes that bring about macro-level outcomes that, we as sociologists, care about. This will entail an exploration of processes of interpersonal influence, diffusion, network externalities, collective action problems, and emergence of norms, hierarchies, and segregation patterns. Most of the readings of this course rely on quantitative methods such as regression modeling, field experiments, behavioral games, network analysis, as well as simple computer simulations and mathematical modeling. As such, even though this course has no formal prerequisites, students are expected to be familiar with quantitative methods used in the social sciences at the level of SOC3010.
