Overview

Terence Kilbourne Hopkins (1929-1997) was a hidden gem of the field of world-systems studies who contributed indispensably to its foundation amid a lifelong collaboration and friendship with Immanuel Wallerstein. His pedagogical humanism, methodological rigor, and scientific commitment to social change, merged with his creatively flexible administrative skills to found the Graduate Program in Sociology at Binghamton University (SUNY). The student-centered, autonomous program fostered the formation of critically-minded scholars who pursue transdisciplinary sociology while fusing deeply personal commitments to long-term, large-scale social change.


In this significantly updated twentieth anniversary second edition of Mentoring, Methods, and Movements, Terence K. Hopkins’s former students organizing and contributing to a colloquium in his honor a few months before his untimely passing in January 1997 share key insights about what made him so unique and impactful in shaping their practices of engaged sociology—informed by an always open, dynamic, and self-reinventing World-Systems Analysis.

About the Author

Immanuel Wallerstein, founder of World-Systems Analysis, is Senior Research Scholar at the Yale Sociology Department. As of 1976, he served as distinguished professor of sociology at Binghamton University (SUNY) until his retirement in 1999, and as head of the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems and Civilizations until 2005. Wallerstein is the author or editor of numerous books, articles, and reports, including his multi-volume series The Modern World-System (I-IV) (Univ. of California Press, 2011), Historical Capitalism with Capitalist Civilization (Verso, 2011), and Utopistics: Or Historical Choices of the Twenty-First Century (The New Press, 1998). More recently he has edited The World is Out of Joint: World-Historical Interpretations of Continuing Polarizations (Routledge, 2016).

Mohammad H. Tamdgidi, retired associate professor of sociology at UMass Boston and previously full-time lecturer at SUNY-Oneonta and adjunct lecturer at SUNY-Binghamton, is the founding editor of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge, a publication of OKCIR: the Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics) which has served since 2002 to frame his independent research, pedagogical, and publishing initiatives. His publications include Advancing Utopistics: The Three Component Parts and Errors of Marxism (Routledge/Paradigm, 2007) and Gurdjieff and Hypnosis: A Hermeneutic Study (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009).

Terence K. Hopkins (1929-1997), one of the founding fathers of world-systems analysis, came to Binghamton in 1970 in order to found its program of graduate studies in sociology, and he remained its Director for two decades. Hopkins completed his doctoral studies at Columbia University in 1959 and joined the Columbia faculty in 1958 and remained there until 1970. In the 1960s, Hopkins conducted research in Uganda, and spent two years teaching at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad. He was a member of the Executive Committee of the Ad Hoc Faculty Group at Columbia during the 1968 rebellion. Hopkins served as a member of the Executive Board of the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems, and Civilizations. Terence K. Hopkins is the author of The Exercise of Influence in Small Groups (Bedminister Press, 1964) and has coedited, with Immanuel Wallerstein, The Age of Transition: Trajectory of the World-System, 1945-2025 (Zed Books, 1996); with Giovanni Arrighi and Immanuel Wallerstein, Antisystemic Movements (Verso, 1989); and with Immanuel Wallerstein, World-Systems Analysis: Theory and Methodology (Sage, 1982). Hopkins unexpectedly passed away, embraced by his loving family, students and colleagues on January 3, 1997.
