SOCI 030E. Work and Organizations


Americans may spend up to half their waking hours “at work.” Work is perhaps the most significant means by which American society shapes our own personal experience and life chances, and through which structures and dynamics of society are generated. We will explore: (1) the meaning of work, and its relationships to personal identity and purpose in life, (2) the social organization of work, including occupations and professions, the structure of careers, workplaces, and contemporary changes such as “gig economy,” and (3) the relationship of work to the creation and maintenance of power and social inequality.
