Agency and Structure in Zygmunt Bauman’s Modernity and the Holocaust. Shaun Best’s podcast outlines the critique that he developed in his article, ‘Agency and Structure in Zygmunt Bauman’s Modernity and the Holocaust’, Irish Journal of Sociology May 2014 volume 22 issue 1. The focus of the podcast is on Bauman’s central concepts of adiaphoria and the agentic state. The argument developed is that by using these concepts Bauman undervalues the role of human agency in the unfolding of the Holocaust.

Coauthors Jeremy Reynolds and Matthew May discuss their article for Social Currents' second issue, "Religion, Motherhood, and the Spirit of Capitalism."

 

Abstract: Religion can help people cope with problems, but in the modern U.S. economy, it may also create problems for some women. Conservative Protestantism encourages women to avoid paid work when they have young children, but that is a preference many families cannot afford. To better understand how workplace outcomes may reflect religion, we examine whether conservative Protestant, mainline Protestant, Catholic, and non-religious women work the number of hours they prefer. We pay special attention to the interplay of religion and motherhood. We find that among new mothers, conservative Protestants are among the most likely to wish they were working fewer hours. Non-religious women, in contrast, are the least likely to want fewer hours. Among women who are not new mothers, the situation is reversed. Conservative Protestants are least likely to wish they were working fewer hours and non-religious women are the most likely to want fewer hours. These results suggest that researchers interested in the subjective side of employment should pay more attention to how religion shapes experiences of paid work.
