Interest in "public sociology" in the United States is a positive sign for researchers who seek to span the borders between academia and social change. However, it is important not to assume that just because sociological research is publicly oriented it will automatically advance human rights, justice, and ecological sustainability. Sociologists must critically consider principles for conducting public sociology if their work is to have a libratory outcome. This is particularly crucial when academic researchers attempt to directly work with marginalized social groups. In this article, I draw upon my experiences conducting a project of public sociology on local homeless policy to identify four basic principles for "counterhegemonic organic public sociology." L'intérêt à "la sociologie publique" aux Etats-Unis est un signe positif pour les chercheurs dont le travail cherche à enjamber les frontières entre le milieu universitaire, la communauté, et l'activisme. Cependant, il est important de ne pas supposer que cela avancera automatiquement les droits de l'homme, la justice, et la durabilité écologique juste parce que la recherche sociologique est publiquement orientée. Les sociologues doivent en critique considérer des principes pour conduire la sociologie publique si leur travail aura la fonction de se libérer. C'est particulièrement important quand des chercheurs universitaires essaient de travailler directement avec les groupes sociaux marginalisés. En cet article, j'utilise mes expériences en ayant conduit un projet de la sociologie publique sur la politique de sansabris régionale pour identifier quatre principes de base pour la sociologie publique qui est à la fois "contre-hégémonique et organique." El interés por la "sociología pública" entre los sociólogos americanos es un síntoma positivo para los investigadores cuyo trabajo tiende a cruzar las fronteras entre lo académico, la acción comunitaria y el activismo. Sin embargo, es importante tener en cuenta que nó porque la investigación sociológica se oriente hacia lo público, va a hacer avanzar las causas de los derechos humanos, la justicia y la sostenibilidad ecológica. Los sociólogos deben tener en cuenta ciertos principios si quieren que su trabajo tenga una función liberadora. Esto es particularmente importante cuando los investigadores académicos tratan de trabajar con grupos socialmente marginados En este artículo me apoyo en mi experiencia al realizar un proyecto de sociología sobre la política local de los "sin techo" para identificar cuatro principios básicos para "una sociología pública orgánica anti-hegemónica."
