Richard Jenkins and the Future of Sociology

I was alerted to this lecture given by Richard Jenkins  at Aalborg. I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I agree with. I wasn't expecting that. Of course there are a few things I could quibble about: where's demography as a cognate discipline?; the characterization of quantitative sociology is a bit unhelpful; the veneration of  Wright Mills. But it's a thoughtful piece that gets a lot of things right.
