Neuroqueer frontiers: Neurodiversity, gender, and the (a)social self
Wiley Online Library » Sociology Compass
by Jessica Penwell Barnett
1w ago
Abstract This paper critically synthesizes leading edge scholarship on neurodiversity, arguing that sociology could expand its account for the relationship between self and society through attention to the (a)social practices of those constructed as neurologically disabled. Autistic scholar-activism birthed the neurodiversity paradigm, which claims respect for neurological diversity and its social manifestations. Sexual and gender variation are among those. I review research on the confluence of neurological, sexual, and gender variance, pointing to opportunities for documenting the roles of s ..read more

Critique and expansion of conceptions of control
Wiley Online Library » Sociology Compass
by Liansheng Wang, Maofu Wang, Jingyi Wu
1M ago
Abstract Neil Fligstein's Conceptions of control have multiple theoretical origins in the institutional, political, and cultural perspectives of the new economic sociology. However, conceptions of control as a key concept of market structure have not systematically been formulated in Fligstein's works, remaining insightfully but relatively fragmentally. This paper summarizes the normative, power, and cognitive dimensions of conceptions of control, respectively corresponding to market agreement, dominant relationship and common understanding. On this basis, this paper provides a clear definitio ..read more

Coalitions across divides: The interactional maintenance paradigm
Wiley Online Library » Sociology Compass
by Federica Stagni
1M ago
Abstract Over the years, scholars have investigated how alliances begin and end, paying particular attention to factors that facilitate the emergence of movement and campaign coalitions. However, the issue of maintaining co-resistance among distinct activist groups that lasts over time is still understudied. This contribution aims to fill this gap. Through an in-depth empirical study of the long-lasting cooperation of Israeli-Palestinian activist organizations in the Palestinian region of the South Hebron Hills, this article singles out various factors that allowed this alliance to survive int ..read more

Negotiating class, religion, and residential segregation: Aspirations of Muslim middle‐class women in Delhi
Wiley Online Library » Sociology Compass
by Aashti Salman
1M ago
Abstract This paper delves into the employment aspirations and struggles for upward social mobility of middle-class Muslim female youth in Delhi, located in segregated and non-segregated areas. The paper contends that women respondents navigate constraints such that their class, gender and religious background have an ambivalent role in the production of aspirations but a more definitive one in their realisation. This argument is anchored in the three key themes addressed in the paper. For women from middle and lower sections of the middle-class the presence of high aspirations does not transl ..read more

The child welfare system as a social determinant of health
Wiley Online Library » Sociology Compass
by Katherine Maldonado Fabela
1M ago
Abstract Research documents the ways that policing, incarceration, and deportation influence the health of racialized, poor families in the U.S. However, we lack empirical analysis of the ways that family policing through the child welfare system affects health. In this paper, I review the literature on intersectional harms in carceral institutions to argue that the child welfare system is a social determinant of health. First, I provide a review of the ways carceral institutions target women of color through settler-colonial logic and the criminalization of race, poverty, and reproduction. Se ..read more

Wiley Online Library » Sociology Compass
by Marco Trentini
1M ago
Abstract Many European countries want to overcome the early exit from labour market which was widespread since the 1970s through pension reform and labour policies. The extension of working life is hindered by factors that the literature overlooks. This article focuses on the discontinuity of the late-career caused by unemployment. The aim is to investigate whether older workers are at risk of unemployment and what are the transitions after spells of unemployment. The labour market trajectories of workers over 50s in 11 European countries from 2006 to 2019 were analysed, specifically after the ..read more
