Workshop on Meaning: Language and Socio-cultural Processes

This month’s Workshop on Meaning will take place on Tuesday, September 22nd, from 4-6pm.

John Mohr, Ph.D.
Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara

“Formal Methods, Structural Models & the Sociology of Culture”

The new formalism in the sociology of culture builds on structural linguistics and semiotic theory; it uses relational methodologies to identify patterns in cultural systems, institutional logics and discourse systems as a measure of culture, and links back to measures of social structure.
