Sociological Books and their Covers


Project Summary:

This project in intertextuality involves visual sociology analysis of the covers of sociology's classics from around the world. A first inquiry, with R. Abdelbaki, K. Ahmed, K. Banasiak, and D. Gul Kaya, compared covers of Edward W. Said's Orientalism from Islamicate contexts with those from non-Islamicate contexts. A second inquiry, with S. Chapman-Nyaho and R. Raby, looked at how covers of Discipline and Punish can transcend a narrow focus on the prison and the Panopticon. A third inquiry will be on The Souls of Black Folk.
