Jane Addams and the men of the Chicago school, 1892-1918 by Mary Jo Deegan( Book )
27 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in English and held by 803 libraries worldwide
"Jane Addams is well known for her leadership in urban reform, social settlements, pacifism, social work, and women's suffrage.The men of the Chicago School are well known for their leadership in founding sociology and the study of urban life.What has remained hidden however, is that Jane Addams played a pivotal role in the development of sociology and worked closely with the male faculty at the Department of Sociology at the University of Chicago.By using extensive archival material, Mary Jo Deegan is the first to document Addams's sociological significance and the existence of a sexual division of labor during the founding years of the discipline. As the leader of the women's network, Addams was able to bridge these two spheres of work and knowledge.Through an analysis of the changing relations between the male and female networks, Deegan shows that the Chicago men varied widely in their understanding and acceptance of her sociological though and action.Despite this variation, it was through her work with the men of the Chicago School that Addams left a legacy for sociology as a way of thinking, an area of study, and a methodological approach to data collecting.This previously unexamined heritage of American sociology will be of value to anyone interested in the history of the social sciences, especially sociology and social work, the development of American social thought, the role of professional women, the Progressive Era, and the intellectual contributions of Jane Addams."--Provided by publisher

Essays in social psychology by George Herbert Mead( Book )
18 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 324 libraries worldwide
"Mary Jo Deegan, a Meadian scholar, has edited this volume, footnoting now obscure references and authors. Her introduction explains how this previously lost manuscript affects contemporary Meadian scholarship and how it reflects the city and times in which he lived. Unlike the posthumous volumes assembled from lecture notes, Essays in Social Psychology is the only book actually written by Mead and challenges most current scholarship on him. The selections are highly readable, surprisingly timely yet historically significant. Psychologists, sociologists, and educators will find it immensely important."--BOOK JACKET

Self, war, & society : George Herbert Mead's macrosociology by Mary Jo Deegan( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 260 libraries worldwide
"George Herbert Mead (1863-1931) is a central founder of the field of sociology. Mead's theory of war, peace, and society emerged out of the historical events of his time, particularly World War I. During this time Mead went from being a pacifist, along with his contemporaries John Dewey and Jane Addams, to being a strong advocate for war. During America's participation in World War I, from 1917-1918, Mead became a public and intellectual leader on the need for war based on his theory of self and society. After the war, he became disillusioned with President Woodrow Wilson, Americans' failure to support mechanisms for international arbitration, and the political reasons for American participation in World War I. Mead also returned to a more pacifist and co-operative model of behavior during the 1920s, he became less political, more abstract, and more withdrawn from public debates than he was prior to the conflict. The book includes Deegan's interpretation of Mead's early social thought, his friendship and family networks, the historical context of America at war, and the importance of analysis of violence and the state from Mead's perspective. Deegan also provides illustrative selections from Mead's work, much of which was previously unpublished."--BOOK JACKET
The American ritual tapestry : social rules and cultural meanings ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 248 libraries worldwide
American rituals are vital to the creation and renewal of cultural meanings and rules for social interaction. These rituals are rooted in tradition yet are rapidly changing: a contradiction of hyper-modern society. This phenomenon was first explored by Professor Deegan in her 1989 study American Ritual Dramas. The theory examines both participatory rituals and mass-media rituals to show how everyday people become attached to and alienated from other rituals. Elaborating on the critical dramaturgy theory, the essays in this collection show how patterns can be changed to create a more emancipato
Play, school, and society by George Herbert Mead( Book )
11 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
""Play" is central to the ideas of George Herbert Mead and fundamental to the emergence of all social behavior. It is formative in the genesis of self-consciousness and a pathway connecting intersubjectivity and emotions. The child's play calls out the parental attitude, and this relationship becomes a model for the community and society. Mead's ideas emerged from an interacting circle of scholars and activists in Chicago including John Dewey, Jane Addams, and Mary McDowell."--Jacket

Annie Marion MacLean and the Chicago Schools of Sociology, 1894-1934 by Mary Jo Deegan( Book )
7 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
"Although Annie Marion MacLean, teacher, sociologist, and leader, gained international fame as an expert on working women's issues, her significant contributions are overlooked by contemporary scholarship. MacLean was extraordinary by any standard?her level of education; her precedent-setting behaviors, research, methodological innovations, public impact, and writing; her dedication to women's freedom and social justice; and her love for family and friends.MacLean was a vigorous and creative exponent of the forceful spirit of Chicago sociologists. As a graduate of the department of sociology at the University of Chicago, MacLean became one of the founders of the discipline. MacLean was an ally and friend to other sociologists in Chicago who were both students and faculty at the university and at another world-class institution, the social settlement Hull-House. She gained fame as an expert on working women, using ideas to expand their options and respond to their need for social justice.Mary Jo Deegan documents the life, accomplishments, and works of this noted scholar. Deegan explores such topics as Annie Marion MacLean and sociology at the University of Chicago and Jane Addams' Hull-House, MacLean and feminist pragmatism, women and the sociology of work and occupations, women's labor unions and the feminist pragmatist welfare state, the sociology of immigration and race relations, and MacLean's legacy to sociology and society. Her inspiring story will be of interest to those exploring the roots of the discipline of sociology."--Provided by publisher
