Aннотация:
The course examines individual and structural explanations for the generation and maintenance of inequality in the United States and the influence of stratification on individuals and groups. It covers status attainment and social mobility; the allocation of societal rewards according to class, race, and gender; the distribution of educational opportunities and cultural capital; and labor market segmentation by race, ethnicity, and gender. The course will present (1) an analysis of popular, political, and social scientific concern with social equality and inequality, examine trends of social inequality and review the ways in which social inequality regimes have been studied in sociological analysis, including classical and contemporary theories. We will consider (2) problems of identification of the social class- and status-based groupings and analysis of their distinctive characteristics and interrelationships; analysis of patterns of attainment of social status and movement (mobility) among them; and examination of responses to inequality and the ways in which such responses may themselves alter the inequality regimes. We turn, finally, to (3) the bearing of major macro-societal trends, including socio-demographic changes, technological, communication, labor market, and production and distribution trends, and geo-political shifts, on regimes of inequality and stratification.
