About this title:
Synopsis:
With SEEING SOCIOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTION, respected author and award-winning professor Joan Ferrante offers an exciting and fresh introduction to sociology in which the visual and text narratives are profoundly interwoven. Sociology's relevance to daily life is illustrated through the use of everyday images and pictures. These "SocScenes" allow students to read about and visually apply sociological concepts. The easy-to-manage, modular table of contents allows for flexibility and synthesis of information.

About the Author:
Joan Ferrante, Ph.D. in Sociology from University of Cincinnati, is a professor of sociology at Northern Kentucky University (NKU). After receiving her doctorate she served as managing editor of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior. Since then, she has spent more than 30 years working to find examples and ways of teaching sociology that engage students. SOCIOLOGY: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE and SEEING SOCIOLOGY reflect her efforts. Joan has also focused on presenting sociology as a tool for making a difference in the world. With the support of the Mayerson Family Foundations, she designed the curriculum for a student philanthropy project at NKU in which students, as part of their course work, decide how to use $4,000 to address a community need. The program has been adopted by dozens of universities across the United States. Joan also supports a study abroad scholarship at NKU that awards each of 10 to 15 students up to $1,000 every year. Finally, for several years Joan has used proceeds from her royalties to support the position of academic advisor to NKU sociology majors.

About the Author:
Joan Ferrante is a professor of sociology at Northern Kentucky University (NKU) as well as project director of the Campus Connect Student Philanthropy Project, which awards grants primarily to Kentucky and Ohio colleges and universities to support the integration of student philanthropy projects with academic coursework. In addition, Dr. Ferrante sponsors a Study Abroad Scholarship at NKU called "Beyond the Classroom." Open to any student who has used her introductory text (new or used), the scholarship annually awards funds to five students to support their studies outside the United States. Respected among instructors and students alike, Dr. Ferrante also is the author of SOCIOLOGY: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, 9th Edition and co-editor of THE SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION OF RACE AND ETHNICITY IN THE UNITED STATES. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati.
