Sociologists seek to understand the processes through which social groups and societies alter their structure and culture over both long and short timeframes. Research ranges from historical and comparative studies of war and social revolution to case studies of the individual and cultural dynamics that shape the behavior(s) of change agents.
Sociology analyzes factors that affect social stability as well as the dynamics of social movements such as labor, civil rights, feminist, LGBTQ, democracy and environmentalist movements both today and historically. Research identifies the conditions under which such movements emerge and what impacts their success or failure in achieving their goals.
