We Are Posting Annex Segments!

Through the work of our new producer, Lisseth Moreno, we are starting to post individual Annex segments in a new series, Annex Segments.  The purpose of this series is to make individual discussions on The Annex visible to those making web searches on the people and topics we discuss, and to make it easier to link to author interviews or specific discussions on the web, social media and syllabi.  We are slowly making our way through past episodes.

You can see our completed but yet-to-be-posted segments on our Soundcloud page.

A selection from last winter:

Has Postmodernism Taken Over Sociology?  Joe, Leslie, Gabriel, and Clayton Childress (University of Toronto) discuss Nick Wolfinger’s (University of Utah) tweet about the charge that postmodernism has taken over sociology.

The ASA’s Position on Objectivity.  Joe, Leslie, and Gabriel discuss the ASA’s 2019 thematic statement’s problematizing the concept of “objectivity.”

Generations Theories. Joe, Leslie, Gabriel, and Neda Maghbouleh (University of Toronto) discuss “generational theories”, which posit that people born within definable societal generations (e.g., Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers) have distinct, identifiable dispositions in beliefs and behaviors.

Pat Reilly on the Comedy Business.  Joe, Leslie and Gabriel sit down with Pat Reilly (University of California, Irvine) to discuss his work on the career trajectories of stand-up comics.

The B-Side is Back!

We are very excited to announce that The B-Side, a podcast that engages thinkers at the cutting edge of black culture, politics, and much more.  The podcast is hosted by Georgetown sociologists Leslie Hinkson (co-host of The Annex podcast) and Corey Fields (author of the much acclaimed Black Elephants in the Room).  The B-Side returns as a regular series after a well-received pilot episode.
