Aннотация:
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.
