American sociologists have been reading Sociological Images for years now, but I think it’s about time for this blog to go big worldwide. The blog, run by a group of US academics, offers sociological commentary on photographs, illustrations, videos, and charts in simple language. The blog is particularly strong when it comes to gender and family issues, but they post on race and ethnicity on a regular basis as well.
Here are some of the best Sociological Images posts on Asia and Asian America.
Asian femininity and the male gaze
Racism and exclusion
The exotic other
