This seminar explores processes of stratification in the United States and other affluent countries. The course is organized into two parts, which correspond to two basic approaches to the study of stratification pursued by sociologists and other social scientists. One is to focus on the structure of positions in the distribution of earnings, income, wealth, and so on. Research following this approach examines the causes of over-time trends and cross-country differences in the overall degree of inequality. The other approach focuses on how people are allocated to positions in the distribution. Research in this tradition assesses the effects of education, intelligence, family background, neighborhood conditions, gender, race, industry of employment, union membership, aspirations, ties/connections, and other factors on attainment.
Comparing Social Stratification Schemas: CAMSIS, CSP-CH, Goldthorpe, ISCO-88, Treiman, and Wright [статья]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Manfred Max Bergman, Dominique Joye
The purpose of this article is to inform researchers in the social and political sciences about the main social stratification scales in use today. Six stratification schemas are described in this text: the Cambridge Social Interaction and Stratification Scale (CAMSIS), Swiss Socio-Professional Categories (CSP-CH), John H. Goldthorpes class schema, the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-88), Donald J. Treimans prestige scale, and Erik Olin Wrights class structure. Their theoretical backgrounds and assumptions are discussed, as are their structural and methodological aspects. General problems of contemporary stratification research are covered, and suggestions for future research directions within this field are proposed.

Social Classes [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Matthew McKeever
This course focuses on historical and contemporary analysis of class as the primary determinant of inequality in capitalist society. The course begins with a review of the main classical sociological theories of class from Marx and Weber. We will then explore how more recent authors have continued this area of research in both structural and historical analysis of the development of classes, and examine recent critique and reformulation of the idea of class. Finally, we will explore how sociologists have analyzed the interaction of class with two other main axes of stratification in modern U.S. society, gender and race.

Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Karen Miller-Loessi
This course offers a broad overview of social stratification: what it is, what are its causes, and what are its consequences. The first part of the course will be primarily theoretical and historical, first examining major theories about the causes of stratification and then briefly reviewing the historical development of stratification systems from earliest times. The second part of the course will be primarily oriented to the contemporary social problems associated with social stratification.
Social Inequality [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Matthew McKeever
In modern societies, scarce resources are not equally distributed among all people. This course is intended to introduce students to how sociologists examine the systematic ways in which such inequality is shaped. This course will thus focus on social explanations of how inequality is structured.

Autumn Quarter 2002
The objective of this course is to introduce students to the concept of social stratification. By the end of the quarter the student will have a greater understanding of the forms of social stratification and the impact race, gender, and class have on peoples life chances. Although the courses focus will be mainly on social class, I will integrate race and gender into the course material throughout the quarter. A large portion of the material will cover economical and political aspects of inequality. In other words, we will discuss the influence and control elite populations have on U.S. economic, political, and social institutions.
Social Class [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Ron Lembo
This course will explore various ways that class matters in the United States. Historical accounts will be used in conjunction with sociological theories to discuss the formation of classes, including discourses and myths of class, in American society. Class will then serve as a lens to examine the origins and characteristics of social stratification and inequality in the U.S. The bulk of the course material will focus on more contemporary issues of class structure and class culture, paying particular attention to relations between and across classes as well as to how social class is actually lived out in American society, including the role class plays in the formation of identity and the ways it lends coherence (or not) to daily life. Among other things, we will explore the role that class plays in the reproduction of power and privilege as well as the ways that it figures in challenging that power and privilege. Wherever possible, attention will be paid to the intersection of class relations and practices with race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, among other things. Sociological and anthropological studies, literature, autobiographies, and films, and other kinds of accounts will be used to discuss these issues.

This course is organized into four major parts. In the first part of the course we will be introduced to major concepts that are used to study stratification as well as talk about what stratification and inequality look like in the world and the United States. In the second part we will focus on what early and contemporary social theorists describe as the causes for stratification. The third part of the course will allow you to think about and observe what life is like for those living at various levels of the stratification system. And the last part of the course will bring you back to campus to tie together everything we have learned in considering the role of education and other policies that have been proposed to deal with the consequences and causes of inequality.

Race, Class, and Crime [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Roland Chilton
An examination of the theoretical, empirical, and ethical issues raised by linkages of race and class to crime and responses to crime. Following a discussion of the basic concepts and issues as presented in a set of readings, we will review suggestions and claims of racial and social class bias within and outside of the system of justice and their impact on crime data. The review of factual information will center on reports of the racial and income characteristics of victims of crime, the race and sex characteristics of offenders as suggested by arrests, and the characteristics of those incarcerated or punished in other ways. Students will be evaluated on a set of short papers, classroom participation, and a term paper.
Race/Ethnicity, Class, and Gender [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Sarah Michele Ford
Race/ethnicity, class, and gender have all been, and continue to be, significant areas of social difference and discrimination in American society. In this course we will examine contemporary social conditions as they relate to race/ethnicity, class, and gender. When necessary, we will look back to our history in an attempt to understand how we got where we are today. We will also focus on the ways in which these three elements are interconnected, for we are all raced, sexed, and classed. The combination of these three elements serves to further complicate social difference in America.
Race, Gender, Class and Ethnicity [учебная программа]

Sociology 106 has two basic aims: to introduce the student to the sociological way of thinking and to apply that way of thinking to a historical analysis of inequality in America. In the context of this course, the sociological way of thinking includes the following skills: considering structural as well as individual level explanations for social facts, viewing events as multi rather than uni-determined, distinguishing between a stereotype and a statistically based generalization, and explaining social change in terms of causes that themselves incorporate change.
Social Class Inequality [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003Joya Misra
In this class, you will be introduced to a sociological perspective on social class inequality. Sociologists study inequality in society by focusing primarily on class differences, power differences, and status differences, such as race and gender. These elements are linked together inextricably to create and reinforce inequalities. This course begins by exploring class, race, and gender inequalities in the educational system. Students groups research this topic and then present their findings in class. Next, we discuss some ways that sociologists explain class, race, and gender inequalities. The rest of the semester will be spent considering the different class positions of people in our society - the upper (ruling) class, the middle class, the working class, and finally the poor. Throughout the semester, we will pay particular attention to the impact of race and gender on class locations. This course is interactive, and students will be expected to participate in every class session, take part in one group presentation, and lead discussion twice over the course of the semester. While most students will not spend the rest of their lives taking multiple choice exams, they will need to learn how to communicate effectively with others. Participating and leading discussions and taking part in class presentations help develop this skill.
