course name:simulation and the ‘end of the social’?
How is the work of sociology (whatever this might be!) to continue in a (postmodern?) era of superficiality, playfulness and ironic self-referentiality? We look to the

writings of Jean Baudrillard, a controversial contemporary theorist, who asserts the obsolescence not only of traditional sociological concepts and theorising, but

even of the social itself. Baudrillard’s work explores ‘radical’ or ‘eccentric modernity’ in terms of a range of new models: simulations, hyperreality and the ecstasy

of communication. We focus on how the proliferation of media messages hollows out meaning and reduces the ‘masses’ to silence and hyperconformity.
