Primary Instructor:

The topic of social inequality has recently garnered much public attention. Of course, as a subject of scientific inquiry, social inequality has a much longer and rich history in sociology and, in one way or another, continues to underlie most sociological inquiry. This course provides a broad approach to this core topic by examining theories and empirical contributions in the main areas of social stratification. We will discuss sociological approaches to understanding the shape, causes, and consequences of inequality in class, status, income, wealth, education, race, and gender. The course includes a focus on the dynamics of inequality, assessing its maintenance across time and generations. Furthermore, we will investigate the role of institutional contexts and policies in shaping socio-economic inequalities.
