This course is an introduction to the sociological study of inequality through an analysis of three of its fundamental dimensions—class, race, and gender. The course will explore how each of the three dimensions of inequality is related to the development of modern capitalist society as described by social theorists Marx and Weber. The course also will provide an introduction to basic concepts in social class analysis, to contemporary issues in feminist theories of gender, and to recent work on the social construction of race. It will also trace both the similarities and differences among the three dimensions, their relationship to one another, and to the underlying dynamics of capitalist modernity.
