SOCI 021E. Social Inequalities

In this course, we will consider how do social inequalities structure daily life. Course readings will focus specifically on schools, the workplace, and neighborhoods as social settings where race, class, and gender intersect to shape identities and establish relationships of marginality and advantage. Readings in this course will include ethnographic studies about how race, class, and gender hierarchies are reproduced and challenged in everyday life, as well as theoretical texts that examine the construction and social significance of these hierarchies.
