Pop culture has recently exploded with shows and documentaries about cults, and cults themselves are expanding. Why do people join cults?—and more importantly why do members stay? We’ll start by exploring the quote “No one joins a cult” and examine who starts a cult, how cults recruit, and why college campuses are their primary hunting grounds.

What are the prospects for global businesses in an era of increased populism?

After three decades of increased trade and investment across borders, a new era of increased populist and nationalist sentiment seems to be dawning. Georgetown's McDonough School of Business is preeminent among business schools for educating and preparing global leaders. What should business strategists expect in a world of increased restrictions on trade and foreign direct investment?

How did the United States reach its decision to torture in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks? How could the United States have violated laws and norms around detainee treatment that are so deeply internalized in U.S. identity and practice? In this session, we examine the decisions that led to the extraordinary tactics used to extract information from captured detainees in the early years of the war on terror. We review the consequences of those actions and debate whether they will be used again. We will conclude by assessing to what extent does torture constitutes an effective counterterror tool.

How are we supposed to flourish in a world where the news is more outrageous every day? Where toxic racism, sexism, and classism seem to pollute the very air we breath? Where work demands are ever greater and the rewards are illusions? How did we get here? Sociology aims to answer that last question. We are not powerless against these negative social forces. We can reclaim our joy and vigor and ditch the social construction of the stress culture. Learn how by putting theory into practice and start a contagion of happiness and productivity.
