Critical Sociology is a platform for scholars whose work explores the relationship between race, gender and class in their quest for a deeper understanding of society writ large. It will continue in this fashion in order to preserve its position as one of a select few “alternative” journals having widespread recognition and respect within the world of social science scholarship. The Association for Critical Sociology supports the work of this journal, and seeks to bring helpful information to those interested in critical scholarship.

At the same time, the Institute is engaged in mentoring, training, and providing consulting services, as well as the production of manuals, templates, and other tools to attain its goals of poverty alleviation and integral human development.
