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.

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.
Race, Segregation and Inequality [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 23-12-2002Lawrence D. Bobo
Examines the changing status of African-Americans in the post-civil rights era from a variety of social science perspectives. The focus is on major scholarly assessments of the status of Blacks. Among the focal points of inquiry will be: race-based economic inequality; processes of racial residential segregation; and racial prejudice and bias in politics and everyday interaction. Although focused on contemporary issues and research, the course draws on foundational approaches developed by Du Bois, Johnson, and Drake and Cayton in their pioneering assessments of the status of Blacks.
