SOC 3890 - Power and Inequality in Comparative Perspective
Engaging in a cross-temporal and cross-national investigation, this course critically surveys classical and contemporary debates around the inevitability of social inequality, and explores the ways that inequalities have been reproduced and rationalized, or attenuated and challenged, throughout human history. Key facets and indicators of inequality (such as poverty, homelessness, social exclusion and the distribution of income and wealth) and their relation to central axes of social inequality (class, gender, race/ethnicity and age) are considered. Put simply, this course is concerned with 'who gets what and why?' Students may not hold credit for SOC 3890 and any of: SOC 3871 or the former SOC 3870. Prerequisite: [a grade of "C" or better in SOC 1200 or the former SOC 1201] or [a grade of "C" or better in both SOC 1211 and SOC 1221].
