SOC 244 - Social Class and Inequality


This course will examine a range of explanations of the persistence of different forms of inequality (primarily, but not exclusively) in the US. The course will focus on topic areas as case studies - for example education, labor markets, family policy, etc. - to illuminate the fundamental processes and relations of power that produce, reproduce and challenge the structural integrity. Within each topic area we will pay careful attention to race/ethnicity, gender, social class and sexuality as these structures mark main axes of power and social inequality. Finally, we will examine solutions to inequality.
