    Advertising morality: maintaining moral worth in a stigmatized profession.Andrew C. Cohen & Shai M. Dromi - 2018 - Theory and Society 47 (2):175-206.
    Although a great deal of literature has looked at how individuals respond to stigma, far less has been written about how professional groups address challenges to their self-perception as abiding by clear moral standards. In this paper, we ask how professional group members maintain a positive self-perception in the face of moral stigma. Drawing on pragmatic and cultural sociology, we claim that professional communities hold narratives that link various aspects of the work their members perform with specific understanding of the (...)

    Good on paper: sociological critique, pragmatism, and secularization theory.Shai M. Dromi & Samuel D. Stabler - 2019 - Theory and Society 48 (2):325-350.
    Recent years have seen numerous sociological disagreements devolve into heated debates, with scholars openly accusing their peers of being both empirically wrong and morally misguided. While social scientists routinely reflect on the ethical implications of certain research assumptions and data collection methods, the sociology of knowledge production has said little about how moral debates over scholarship shape subsequent research trajectories. Drawing on the new French pragmatic sociology, this article examines how sociologists respond to criticisms of the moral worth of their (...)
