'Social Constructionisms: Approaches to the Study of the Human World' by Titus Hjelm (UCL SSEES)

30 May 2014

constructionisms cover

Social constructionism is one of the key ideas in the social sciences, offering different frameworks for understanding the human world. But what does it mean when we say that something is ‘socially constructed’? What exactly do we construct in our social interaction? And what actually ‘does’ the constructing?

Through a diverse range of case studies on religion, crime, gender and the media, this volume demonstrates how to apply constructionist ideas in empirical social research.
