SOC 2442 - Systems of Inequality


This course will examine various types of inequality (race, class, gender) in the US and abroad. We will discuss sociological theories covering various dimensions of inequality, considering key research findings and their implications. We will examine to what extent ascriptive characteristics impact a person’s life chances, how social structures are produced and reproduced, and how individuals are able or unable to negotiate these structures.
