1 Welcome to the Study of Sociology at the University of Houston The world needs more sociology textbook author John Macionis says in his Preface to this edition of Sociology. I couldn t agree more! Just imagine if all our citizens understood how power relations work in a society, why some groups and individuals have different opportunities, who is likely to marry whom, or what factors increase cooperation among individuals and groups and which ones increase conflict. Perhaps, if we all shared a sociological perspective, we could alleviate some of our social problems, and maybe prevent others. Personally, I ve often told my students, I think Introduction to Sociology should be a prerequisite for voting! You may or may not agree, but this semester you will have the opportunity to discover how society works why it is organized as it is and what are the consequences, both latent and manifest, inherent in these decisions. Sociology can open your eyes-enlarge and expand your awareness-and provide tools to help you understand how your context influences who you are and what you do. Though many students enroll in Introduction to Sociology to fulfill general requirements, this is a class that can help prepare you for your future no matter what you major in or which career path you follow. Most likely whatever you choose to do for a living, you will work in a group. You will be part of an organization (business, school, facility) and need to cooperate with others (employees, supervisors, clients, and suppliers) to accomplish your tasks. If you want to be successful (and who doesn t that is part of our American Dream), you will need to understand how group interaction works how does the group and context influence the individual, and how can an individual influence or change the group. I urge you to pay close attention this semester. Each chapter and each exercise in MySocLab will contain life lessons that savvy students will use to their advantage. You may even decide to test some of these insights now. For example when you learn about Erving Goffman s presentation of self, you might begin bringing your text to each class and setting it in front of you where your Professor can clearly see it. No need to wait until you graduate to use your sociological perspective. Test it. See how artfully using key props can subtly influence how others perceive you. This semester you will have the opportunity to explore Sociology and learn a bit about the work we Sociologists at the University of Houston do with the additional faculty essays included in this edition of your SOC 1300 textbook. Given the international city we are located in, we have chosen Globalization as the theme for this edition. Looking at the differences in health patterns between nations, Professor Jarron Saint Onge discusses the how health is shaped through globalization in his essay. Professor Jessica Brown explores how nations seek to integrate immigrants through citizenship classes by looking closely at the German situation. Professor Alice Cepeda, with UH alumni Kathryn Nowotny, use interview data to better understand the situation of sex workers on the U.S. and Mexico border. From his fieldwork in Kerala, a state in southern India, Professor Menon contends that Love Jihad may be a means of not only increasing the percentage of one religious group over another, but a way to challenge traditional hierarchies within the caste system. Welcome to Sociology! Xavia Karner, PhD Chair and Associate Professor Department of Sociology xvi WELCOME TO THE STUDY OF SOCIOLOGY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON

2 Who We Are Amanda K. Baumle, PhD, is Associate Professor of Sociology at University of Houston. She serves as the Undergraduate Director for the department. Her research and teaching are focused in the areas of demography, social inequality, and the sociology of law. She employs both quantitative and qualitative methodologies in her research. Dr. Baumle s current research explores issues involving the demography of sexual orientation, voting rights and other issues related to immigration, and gender inequality in the legal practice. In these areas, she has authored and edited books, articles, and book chapters examining issues of inequality and discrimination, as well as the manner in which the law might be activated as a means to challenge existing inequalities. Professor Baumle teaches undergraduate courses in Gender and Society, Introduction to Social Statistics, and Sociology of Sexuality. Jessica Brown, PhD, joined the University of Houston Department of Sociology as an Assistant Professor in Fall Professor Brown conducts qualitative research in the areas of immigration, transnational sociology, gender, and race and ethnicity. Her dissertation examined the process of citizenship education for immigrants in the German city of Frankfurt am Main with a focus on how certain normative ideologies, emotions, and micro-level practices are used to draw the line between citizen and outsider. Her earlier work looked at British print media coverage of falling fertility levels in the UK and Europe and analyzed pronatalist appeals aimed at convincing nativeborn (white) women to increase their fertility so as to forestall the need for replacement migration. Professor Brown teaches undergraduate courses in Sociology of Immigration, Sociology of Marriage and the Family, and Qualitative Research Methods. Tim Brown, PhD, is a Lecture of Sociology at the University of Houston. His research interests include Criminology and Deviance. Professor Brown teaches undergraduate courses in Introduction to Sociology, Sociological Theory, Criminology and Social Problems. Alice Cepeda, PhD, is currently Associate Professor and Graduate Director in the Department of Sociology at the University of Houston where she is also Senior Researcher at the Office for Drug and Social Policy Research. Dr. Cepeda has authored articles on the relationship between drugs and violence, sex workers on the U.S./Mexico border, gang affiliated adolescent females and risks associated with transitioning to injecting heroin use. She has worked on various National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) grants focused on substance use and related health consequences among minority populations including those of Mexican-origin (Mexican Americans and Mexicans). More recently, she is co-investigator of a NIDA funded R01 study examining how disaster related experiences associated with Hurricane Katrina impact changes in substance use and abuse patterns. Dr. Cepeda is also project director of a 5 year research project as part of the University of Houston Drug Abuse Research Development Program recently funded by NIDA. The research uses a network facilitation approach used to focus on the extent to which networks facilitate (or impede) injecting drug use and related risk behaviors among aging Mexican American heroin users in Houston. Professor Cepeda teaches undergraduate courses in Deviance, Criminology, Sociological Research Methods, and Drugs and Alcohol. Russell Curtis, PhD, has research interests in Organizations (human service organizations, including criminal justice settings, schools and other educational organizations; commitment mechanisms in social movements), Social movements and collective behavior, Social psychology (identity transformations especially in organizational settings; self-image; models of motivation).

The SERG team has presented their work on public school grade retention to the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., which published two of the studies conducted by the team. In 2001, Dworkin was a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University in Canberra, conducting Who We Are xvii

3 research on a national survey of Australians and an assessment of teacher burnout. In the summer of 2010 Dworkin was elected President of the Sociology of Education Research Committee of the International Sociological Association, a UNESCO chartered organization with members from 167 nations. His term of office runs until summer Professor Dworkin teaches undergraduate courses in Sociological Theory, Sociology of Education, and Race and Ethnicity. Helen Rose Ebaugh, PhD, is Professor of Sociology at the University of Houston, where she has been on the faculty since Dr. Ebaugh has served as president of the national Association for the Sociology of Religion, helped organize and served as the first chair of the American Sociological Association s Section on the Sociology of Religion and is past president of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion. Ebaugh received two consecutive research grants from the Pew Charitable Trusts to study religion and the new immigrants in the United States. With a major grant from the Lilly Endowment, Ebaugh studied inter-faith coalitions and their provision of social services. In addition to a national survey of these coalitions, she and her research team conducted fieldwork in coalitions across the country, with focus upon the interrelationships between coalitions and the religious congregations with which they partner in their joint effort to provide social services to the needy. Most recently (2009) Ebaugh published a book on the Gulen Movement, a transnational moderate Islamic movement devoted to education and interfaith dialog.

5 Majoring in Sociology The University of Houston is a state university with a student body of over 30,000. Ranked as the fourth largest city in the nation, Houston provides a natural laboratory for social research. Eleven full-time sociology faculty engage in a variety of research projects concerning such policy-relevant topics as public education, health, religion, culture, and sports. Faculty members have received support for their research from various sources including the National Institutes of Health, the Ford Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, U.S. Census Bureau, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Lilly Foundation, and local foundations and agencies. These projects provide research experience and financial support for students, as well as employment opportunities for graduates. Our undergraduate program offers majors a foundation in sociological theory, research methods, and both qualitative and quantitative methods. Our unique internship program also provides students with invaluable experience and skills that will prepare them for the workforce upon graduation. Students may take the internship program during their senior year. We also offer a minor in Sociology which allows students to take the courses that are most appropriate to coordinate with their major and career aspirations. Sociology is the study of human life within group contexts, varying from small, intimate groups to large, complex organizations and societies. Since group interaction is a part of every individual s life, sociology is considered part of a student s liberal education. Courses in the Department of Sociology emphasize an understanding of a broad range of subjects: the family, socialization, gender roles, work and occupations, deviance, minority groups, urban life, and so forth. In addition to these courses, students majoring in sociology receive a rigorous grounding in statistics and social research methodology, including experimental designs, sample survey designs, qualitative procedures stressing participant observation, and the application of methods to the study of concrete social problems. With both graduate and undergraduate members, the UH Sociology Students Association is an active student-run campus organization. The UHSSA organizes regular events including film screenings, community fund-raising, panel discussions, and much more. You can find more about our programs and department news at our website, Advising in Sociology Students interested in the Sociology degree programs are encouraged to meet with Mr. Landis Odoms, the program advisor, early in their educational process. His phone number is or Advising Schedule Office hours are open for walk ins and flexible for appointments.

9 The Implications of Globalization for Health and Disease Jarron M. Saint Onge University of Houston There are clear and established differences in health patterns between nations. Developed countries such as the United States, France, and Japan are characterized by high levels of life expectancy (e.g. a newborn child can expect to live more than 75 years), low levels of childhood and mother deaths, and access to high quality health care. Conversely, less developed countries have low levels of life expectancy (as low as 40 years in parts of sub-saharan Africa), high levels of child and maternal deaths, as well as a heightened risk of death from infectious diseases that rarely lead to death in more developed countries. Many of these differences are due to standards of living and social inequalities. Developing countries are now attaining improved health at an earlier time in their economic development than previously found in history. These advances are due in part to the process of globalization. Globalization, simply defined, is the integration of trade and innovation throughout the world s economies. This complex economic and ideational force brings with it a myriad of benefits, compromises, and problems that are only recently emerging and will require creative analysis over the emerging decades. In particular, globalization has major implications for health and disease across multiple populations around the globe. Both developed and developing countries are faced with a new variety of health and disease issues that are associated with a more interconnected world. Courtesy of Getty Images USA, Inc. So, how is health shaped through globalization? Health behaviors, types of disease, and health care technologies and systems are all impacted through continued global connectedness. The effects of globalization on health can operate both directly and indirectly and can be either positive or negative. Direct impacts on health may occur through explicit trade regulations or the incorporation of new health information or health care technologies, while more indirect impacts could be related to the improvements in infrastructure (i.e. transportation, electricity, and sewage), job safety requirements, communication, or access to clean water. An example of globalization having direct impacts on health is the North America Free Trade Agreement set in place by 1994 eliminated barriers to trade between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The direct impact of this policy was that it increased manufacturing along the borders and compromised the health of border citizens. These increased job opportunities in factories along the Mexican border tended to have fewer safety regulations that protect workers than those in the U.S. Trade with developing countries has also been linked to the increased production of pollution and environmental wastes from those countries, due to less stringent environmental laws. Pollution does not respect international borders and has global repercussions. Increased incidents of hospitalized asthma cases along both the Canadian and Mexican borders have been linked to increased levels of factory emissions and traffic pollution. Recent emission produced in China has been tracked across multiple countries including Japan and Korea and as far as the Western United States. In other instances, the removal of trade barriers and unequal partnerships between countries have also lead to the dumping of toxic materials in developing countries which have been linked to disrupted water sources, illnesses, and even deaths in some extreme cases. For example, in 2006, 15 people died and over 100,000 individuals became nauseous from the disposal of over 500 metric tons of European gasoline waste in the Ivory Coast. Trade implementations have also been directly linked to health by reducing access to affordable prescription drugs in developing countries through the increase in patent time expirations and the extension of patent rights across borders. Disease patterns across the developed and developing worlds look very different. In industrialized countries, individuals typically die of chronic or non-communicable diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, or Alzheimer s disease. In developing countries, there are higher risks of infectious or communicable diseases such as diarrheal diseases, measles, malaria, HIV/Aids, and tuberculosis. Indeed, it is rare for an individual to die from measles or malaria in developed countries. While globalization is not necessarily the cause of these differences in disease patterns, it has been linked to some of the persistence in disease patterns. For example, one explanation for the alarming spread of HIV/ Aids in Africa has been linked to xxiv THE IMPLICATIONS OF GLOBALIZATION FOR HEALTH AND DISEASE
