Sociology is interested in our behavior as social beings; thus the sociological field of interest ranges from the analysis of short contacts between anonymous individuals on the street to the study of global social processes.
Sociology as a scientific discipline emerged in the early 19th century as an academic response to the challenge of modernity: as the world was becoming smaller and more integrated, people's experience of the world was increasingly atomized and dispersed.
In 1919 a sociology department was established in Germany at the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich by Max Weber and in 1920 in Poland by Florian Znaniecki.

 Computational sociology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computational sociology is a recently developed branch of sociology that uses computation to analyze social phenomena.
The basic premise of computational sociology is to take advantage of computer simulation in the construction of social theories.
In relevant literature, computational sociology is often related to the study of social complexity.

The book's twelve chapters explore: Foucault's concept of discourse; the critique of the medicalization thesis; analysis of the body and the self; Foucault's concepts for feminist research on embodiment and gendered subjectivities; the application of Foucault's notion of governmentality to the analysis of health policy, health promotion and the consumption of health.
Assesses the profound impact of Foucault's work and shows how key researchers in the sociology of health and illness are currently engaging with his work.

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is an expanding unit whos undergraduate and graduate programs center on social inequality, the structural bases of social conflict, and cultural differences (see www.gmu.edu/departments/soci).
Computational and Theoretical candidates whose interests integrate several aspects of complex systems, modeling and simulation and have close contact with experimentalists will be considered especially interesting.
Gene Regulation and Systems Biology: Through the use of theoretical models and large-scale computation, and leveraging the enormous experimental investment by the biology community, we plan to develop biologically useful theories of large subsystems of cellular function, specifically in the areas of gene regulation, manufacture of RNA and proteins, and cell signaling.

 Mills College - Sociology
Sociology at Mills teaches the sociological imagination through systematic study of empirical research results, theory, and method.
By combining these courses and, sometimes, related courses in other departments, students have the option of organizing their studies into one of several areas of concentration: social inequality; computational social science; race and ethnic relations; law and society; urban sociology; and individual and society.
And, regardless of one's career plans, the Sociology major is an excellent foundation for lifelong learning and citizenship in the global village.

The theme of the 2003 annual meeting, “Simulation Models” is meant to reflect the dynamic nature of methodological research in Sociology.
In sociology, computational and simulation modeling are providing new ways to approach theorizing about society and testing those models.
Agent-based modeling and other forms of computational modeling and simulation have established strong footholds in sociology, political science, economics, and anthropology.

 Agent Based Model...Artilifes.com
Agent Based Model is a specific individual based computational model for computer simulation extensively related to the theme in complex systems, emergence, Monte Carlo Method, computational sociology, multi agent systems, and evolutionary programming.
The idea is to construct the computational devices (known as agents with some properties) and then, simulate them in parallel to model the real phenomena.
The birth of agent based model as a model for social systems was primarily brought by a computer scientist, Craig Reynold.

My main interests have been in the formalization of sociological theories as mathematical models, and the study of the properties of these models by use of computer simulation.
Using perspectives derived mostly from comparative politics and the sociology of the military, I have done several classifications and predictive models directed toward understanding military coups worldwide in the bi-polar era (1947-1989).
Currently, I am working on an article that contrasts several alternative classifications of world-system position of nations (political versus economic) in terms of their utility for understanding military interventions into politics in the period from 1947 to 1989.

As DAI advises sociologists to take a new look at computer methods, this might be a good opportunity to rethink the use of computers for sociology more generally.
