Title: Sociology's Fate: Intersections of History and (My)Biography

Abstract: In this reflective piece I use Mills as a starting point for exploring the intersections between my own biography and some of the main trends in sociology since the journal Sociology was published 50 years ago. The Millsean motif of intertwined ‘personal troubles’ and ‘developments of the epoch’ can usefully be used to examine individual experiences of change and transformation in the discipline and consider key trends such as the ‘flight’ of the discipline and the push towards interdisciplinarity.
