The Save Sociology website was developed by Mathieu Deflem in 2004 in response to the various forms of attack on sociology as an academic discipline that had taken place, especially since the advent of so-called 'public' sociology. This site includes information on the nature of these developments and offers food for thought in an attempt to safeguard the academic status and integrity of sociology.

This site was active between the Summer of 2004 and the Fall of 2006. This site is no longer updated since the Fall of 2006.  See the archived version for the original.
