Section Information for Spring 2023
Why are resources unequally distributed in society? Who ends up at the top and bottom of hierarchies? These questions of social stratification are at the heart of sociology. We will identify and examine structures of social inequality in the United States, with particular emphasis on stratification by race, class, gender, and sexuality. We will study frameworks used to define and understand social hierarchies, as well as how inequality is reproduced through institutions, culture, and public policy. We will attend to stratification in the labor market, criminal justice system, education system, family, neighborhood, and more.
