Podcast:The Craft of Sociology – Howard Becker and Les Back in conversation

I have recently been reading Richard Sennett’s new book The Craftsman and thinking about sociology as craft.  I may post something here when I finish it but, before that I found this.   On Monday 2 November, Howard Becker discussed the craft of sociological writing and thinking at Goldsmiths, University of London. Illustrated  through a series of his favourite sociological studies he demonstrates how these books tell about society and offer useful exemplars for researchers to reflect on their own practice and scholarship.
