Jane Addams is well known for her leadership in urban reform, social settlements, pacifism, social work, and women's suffrage.The men of the Chicago School are well known for their leadership in founding sociology and the study of urban life.What has remained hidden however, is that Jane Addams played a pivotal role in the development of sociology and worked closely with the male faculty at the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago. By using extensive archival material, Mary Jo Deegan is the first to document Addams's sociological significance and the existence of a sexual division of labor during the founding years of the discipline. As the leader of the women's network, Addams was able to bridge these two spheres of work and knowledge.Through an analysis of the changing relations between the male and female networks, Deegan shows that the Chicago men varied widely in their understanding and acceptance of her sociological though and action.Despite this variation, it was through her work with the men of the Chicago School that Addams left a legacy for sociology as a way of thinking, an area of study, and a methodological approach to data collecting. This previously unexamined heritage of American sociology will be of value to anyone interested in the history of the social sciences, especially sociology and social work, the development of American social thought, the role of professional women, the Progressive Era, and the intellectual contributions of Jane Addams.
Die vorliegende Biographie von Jane Addams, der bekanntesten Sozialarbeiterin und Reformpolitikerin ihrer Zeit, beginnt mit der stark expandierenden Industrialisierung in Chicago und erstreckt sich von der Grundung des Hull House bis zur Verleihung des Friedensnobelpreises 1931. Obwohl einige Arbeiten Addams' in Europa rezipiert wurden, ist ihre Vision einer multikulturellen Gesellschaft weitgehend unbekannt geblieben. Der vorliegende Band ist ein Nachdruck der Originalausgabe von 1995.
This volume presents a collection of original papers at the intersection of philosophy, the history of science, cultural and theatrical studies. Based on a series of case studies on the 17th century, it contributes to an understanding of the role played by instruments at the interface of science and art. The papers pursue the hypothesis that the development and construction of instruments make a substantive contribution to the opening up of new fields of knowledge and to the development of new cultural practices, but also to the delineation of particular genres, methods and disciplines.
Die US-Amerikanerin Jane Addams (1860-1935) und die Deutsche Alice Salomon (1872-1948) zahlten zu den national und international bekanntesten Sozialreformerinnen ihrer Zeit. Von den 1890er Jahren bis zum Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges lieferten diese beiden Frauen und ihre Mitarbeiterinnen wichtige Anstosse zur Losung der asozialen Frageo und der aFrauenfrageo sowie Beitrage zur Neu- und Umdefinition der sozialen Arbeit in den Vereinigten Staaten und in Deutschland. Erstmalig wird hier eine Doppelbiographie dieser beiden Frauen vorgelegt, die exemplarisch die Reformbestrebungen der deutschen und amerikanischen Frauenbewegung untersucht und die wechselseitige Rezeption sozialpolitischer Impulse im transatlantischen Reformdialog aufzeigt. Der Vergleich der in Deutschland lange vernachlassigten feministischen Reformtradition mit ihrem amerikanischen Gegenstuck legt dabei die Revision zahlreicher hergebrachter Interpretationen der Frauenbewegungen in beiden Landern nahe. Ein aa Referenzwerk fur all jene, die zur deutschen Frauenbewegung und zur Sozialreform in Deutschland im ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert und in der ersten Halfte des 20. Jahrhunderts forschen.o Das Historisch-Politische Buch aThis work is a welcome addition to the dialogue of current historians about the development of social justice both as ideology and practice and the role of gender in those developments.o The Journal of American History "Schulers gut geschriebenes Buch ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zur transatlantischen Geschichtsschreibung." Historische Zeitschrift "Alle Stationen der beiden Leben sind ausgesprochen gut recherchiert, und es macht Spass, das Buch zu lesen." Ariadne.
George Herbert Mead (1863-1931) is a central, founding figure of modern sociology, comparable to Karl Marx and Max Weber. Mead's early work, prior to his posthumous publications that appeared after 1932, is believed to be a series of articles contemporary scholarship defines as disconnected. A previously unknown, never published set of galleys for a book of essays by Mead, written between 1892 and 1910, unites these articles into a logical perspective. Essays on Social Psychology, Mead's "first" book, clearly locates him within a significantly different tradition and network than documented in his posthumous volumes. The discovery of this work is a major scholarly event. Instead of being abstract and unemotional, as some scholars argue, Mead's early scholarship focused on the significance of emotions, instincts, and childhood as well as political issues underlying political problems in Chicago. During these early years, he was involved with the emerging Laboratory Schools at the University of Chicago which was then the center of progressive education. These early topics, interpretations, and scholarly networks are dramatically different in these writings from those of Mead as a mature scholar. They demonstrate that he was clearly making a transition from psychology to social psychology at a time when the latter was in its infancy. Mary Jo Deegan, a world-renowned Meadian scholar, has comprehensively edited this volume, footnoting now obscure references and authors. Her introduction explains how this previously lost manuscript affects contemporary Meadian scholarship and how it reflects the city and times in which he lived. Unlike the posthumous volumes, assembled from lecture notes, Essays in Social Psychology is the only book actually written by Mead and challenges most current scholarship on him. The selections are highly readable, surprisingly timely yet historically significant. Psychologists, sociologists, and educators will find it immensely important. George Herbert Mead (1863-1931) taught at the University of Chicago from 1894 to 1931. His posthumous volumes are The Philosophy of the Present, Mind, Self, and Society, and The Philosophy of the Act. Mary Jo Deegan is professor of sociology at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. She is the author of Jane Addams and the Men of the Chicago School, 1892-1918, named by Choice as among the outstanding academic books of 1989.
Most texts on classical social theory offer exhaustive coverage of every possible theorist, making it difficult to use the book in one semester. Capitalism and Classical Social Theory, Second Edition represents a departure from this approach by offering solid coverage of the classical triumvirate (Marx, Durkheim, and Weber), but also extending the canon strategically to include Simmel, four early female theorists, and the writings of Du Bois. The result is a manageable, but thorough, examination of the key classical theorists. The second edition has been updated throughout and includes two new chapters: one on Weber and rationalization, and one on Du Bois and his writings on race. A new concluding chapter links classical theory to current developments in capitalism during an age of austerity.
An essential volume for anyone interested in the history of sociology, the development of sociological theory, or the history of women in the profession, this well-researched, compellingly argued book makes the case for the active and significant presence of women in the creation of sociology and social theory in its founding and classic periods. Further, Lengermann and Niebrugge explain how the women came to be erased from the history of sociology and identify the political and intellectual currents that now make their recovery both possible and important. The volume focuses on 15 women in eight chapters. Each chapter begins with a biographical sketch situating each thinkers ideas in a historical, social, and cultural context. Next, the authors analyze the womans theory, summarizing its underlying assumptions, explicating its major themes, and introducing key vocabulary. The chapter concludes with excerpts from the original texts of the women founders. All the theories discussed in this text share a moral commitment to the idea that sociology should and could work for the alleviation of socially produced human pain. The ethical duty of the sociologist is to seek sound scientific knowledge, to refuse to make the knowledge an end in itself, to speak for the disempowered, to advocate social reform, and to never forget that the appropriate relationship between researcher and subject is one of mutuality.
