Abstract

During a time when various analyses and discourses are produced on Coronavirus, it became apparent once again that the main subject of sociology is social matters. Sociology is concerned with social subjects, and as society changes, sociology is expected to analyze these changes with different theories. The recent pandemic, which has been affecting the entire world, also requires the use of sociology. During this period, in which social changes have accelerated and the need to produce new concepts in relation to the said changes has emerged, sociology has to fulfill this need with various methods. With the pandemic, it has become necessary to reevaluate the concepts of labor, space, body, state, risk and virtual field. This will perhaps be the biggest responsibility of sociology. Only sociology can find solutions to the social shortcomings and problems that may arise following the pandemic. The main problems and deficiencies can be resolved with the analyses provided by sociology. In this context, sociology is tasked with undertaking this great responsibility and ensuring that sociological analyses are successfully integrated into society. In the present study, it was aimed to discuss the potential changes related to the pandemic in terms of the responsibilities of sociology and categorically analyze these changes based on the concepts of daily life, labor, class, body and space.
