Social Stratification [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003
William Brislen
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.

Gender, Race and Economic Inequality in the U.S. [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 02-10-2003
Irene Browne
Fall 2000
This course is designed as an overview of major theories, trends and debates on the topic of gender, race and economic inequality in the contemporary United States. The main focus of the course will be on labor market inequality, with a particular emphasis on patterns of inequality that are the center of current debates among policy-makers. We concentrate on labor market inequality for several reasons: First, it is my own area of research. I will be discussing studies and using data that I employ in my own work. This will provide an opportunity for students to carve projects out of the course readings. (However, no one is obligated to use my data, or even to do a quantitative analysis in their final paper). Second, wage labor is the primary source of income for the majority of non-elderly adults in the U.S. Therefore, labor market dynamics are a substantial piece of the puzzle regarding economic inequality. Third, this course is a complement to other courses on social stratification offered in the sociology department. The companion stratification courses cover important and relevant issues to the study of gender and race inequality, including social class and social conflict, inequality in the crossnational context, political and social movements, and intergroup relations.

Social Inequality [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 07-10-2003
Claudia Buchmann
Fall 2002
This course examines the complex phenomenon of social inequality. Social inequality refers to the vertical classifications or hierarchical relations by which human populations are differentially valued. Patterns of inequality are observable across social settings such as the family, the community, social institutions (i.e., the educational system, the legal system), the nation-state, and the global system. In this course we will examine theories and patterns of social inequality in a wide range of contexts. After examining major theories about why inequality exists and persists in societies, we will spend several weeks discussing disparities between social classes (the working poor, the middle class, and the power elite) in the United States. Thereafter we will investigate race, ethnicity, gender and age as the bases of inequality. Finally, we will focus on stratification on a global level.

Race, Class, and Crime [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 25-01-2003
Roland Chilton
Spring, 2002
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: 25-01-2003
Sarah Michele Ford
Spring 2002
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.

Organizations and Global Competitiveness [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 19-11-2007
Gary Gereffi
There is much debate about how societies can develop and become more competitive in today's global economy. A basic premise of this course is that international competitiveness requires an understanding of the organization of markets, which may be viewed as a network of buying and supplying firms organized around the provision of finished goods and services. These organizational chains are increasingly global, and have complex and shifting governance structures that specify the power relations among the organizations in the chain. This framework reveals surprising facts about who controls global industries, which firms make the most money and why, and how new business capabilities are emerging that will determine the corporate leaders of tomorrow. Attention in the course will focus on the organizational dynamics of diverse global industries, and on the competitive strategies of their leading firms. The geographic spread of these industries encompasses North America, Europe, East Asia, South Asia, Latin America, and Africa, both as production sites and markets. This course will expose students to current theories regarding international competitiveness; it will require students to retrieve and analyze original international trade data, and learn how to present this information effectively in tables, charts and graphs; and it will provide a team project experience in designing and evaluating global industry websites.

Seminar in Gender Stratification [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 28-01-2003
Linda Grant
Fall Semester 2001
This course is an advanced-level doctoral seminar in gender stratification. We will review classical and contemporary theories of gender stratification advanced by scholars in sociology and related disciplines and then examine gender stratification gender stratification as it operates in the context of major social and cultural institutions, including the labor market, the family, the welfare system and the state, academia, science, education, medicine and health care, the organization of sexuality, and the like. The seminar presumes that students will have a basic grounding in Sociology of Gender and/or Structured Inequality. We will cover approaches that have been identified as feminist as well as those that have not.

This course reviews classical and contemporary approaches to understanding the differential distribution of valued goods and the social processes by which such inequality comes to be seen as legitimate, natural, or desirable. Although egalitarian values are a fundamental feature of postmodernity, these values exist in tension not only with massive departures from perfect equality but also with historic and unprecedented increases, at least in some domains, in the extent of these departures. Moreover, the processes that generate and maintain inequality appear to be changing, as are the consequences of inequality for lifestyles, consumption practices, and life chances. The foregoing changes invite fresh study of the structure of social inequality and how it varies by time and place.

Sociology of Economic Development [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 19-12-2009
Gary G. Hamilton

The 19th and early 20th century founders of social science were deeply involved in analyzing the social, political, and economic changes that they observed in their own societies. The major theoretical perspectives about transformative changes date from this formative period. Despite the continuing currency of these early perspectives, the focused study of development dates from the post World War II era. From this period, we have gone through two and have entered a third "climate of opinion." Each climate of opinion contains a "circle of discourse" that connects what is perceived to be happening in the world to how theorists analyze social, political, and economic changes. The task of the course is to recognize the sociology of global and historical theorizing as an essential component of trying to understand the world in which we live.

We will examine both a changing world and changing views of the world in each of the three periods. In the first period immediately following World War II, a period in which the cold war developed, a number of sociologists and economists began systematically to investigate Third World societies--societies outside the capitalist and communists worlds. These observers argued for a theory of inevitable endogenous change toward capitalist development and political democracy; this theory became known as modernization theory.

In the 1960s, with the outbreak of the Vietnam war and of many mass movements, social theorists turned towards Marxian analysis and historical, comparative perspectives in order to decipher the changing world as then perceived. In this period, development theorists began passionately to argue for critical, trans-societal views of global change. This line of theorizing encompasses both world systems theory and theories of dependent development.

In the last decades, first with the rapprochement of the communist and capitalist worlds and then with the collapse of communism as a state system and Marxism as a viable political ideology, the sociology of development has begun to take another decisive shift. Recently, theorists are trying to combine views of global market processes with more institutional and organizational views of local and regional societies.

This first half of the course emphasizes the formative period in which the major paradigms of analysis were first formulated and the first two post-war circles of discourse. Then, in the second half of the course, we concentrate on the current circle of discourse.

The Sociology of Development and Global Capitalism [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 19-12-2009
Gary G. Hamilton
This graduate-level course covers an area that is conventionally known as the sociology of development. This course, however, differs from a traditional course in development in that I am attempting here to synthesize a number of different literatures into an integrated perspective that focuses on local economies in an age of global capitalism. I describe these literatures below. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the founders of social science were deeply involved in analyzing the social, political, and economic changes that they observed in their own societies. Most theoretical perspectives about transformative changes, which include economic growth and transformation, date from this formative period. These perspectives include neo-classical economics; two strains of Marxian analysis, one emphasizing political economy of nation states and the other emphasizing global dimensions of capitalism; a Durkheimian interpretation that economic action rests on social norms; and a Weberian view of the historical development and diffusion of Western capitalism. Despite the continuing currency of these early perspectives, the sociology of development, as a defined area of study, dates only from the post World War II era. Starting from this period, we have gone through two and have entered a third "climate of opinion." Each climate of opinion contains a "circle of discourse" that connects what is perceived to be happening in the world to how theorists representing different perspectives analyze social, political, and economic changes. The task of the course is to recognize the sociology of theorizing the global economy, even as we try to engage in the theoretical effort ourselves. Using a comparative, historical perspective to examine both a changing world and changing views of the world, we will outline theoretical developments in the first two periods, and then examine in depth those in the current period. In the first period immediately following World War II, a period in which the cold war developed, a number of sociologists and economists began systematically to investigate Third World societies--societies outside the capitalist and communist worlds. These observers mainly argued for a theory of inevitable endogenous change toward capitalist development and political democracy; this theory became known as modernization theory. In the 1960s, with the outbreak of the Vietnam War and of many mass movements, social theorists turned towards Marxian analysis and historical, comparative sociology in order to decipher the changing world as then perceived. In this period, development theorists began passionately to argue for critical, trans-societal views of global change. This line of theorizing encompasses both world systems theory and theories of dependent development. Although overlapping at first and engaged in a mutual deliberative discourse, these two sets of theories were then in tension with each other and have since diverged. In the last two decades, first with the rapprochement of the communist and capitalist worlds and then with the collapse of communism as a state system and of Marxism as a viable political ideology, the sociology of development is in process of changing in decisive ways. No clear consensus about the best ways to conceptualize economic change has emerged. In fact, quite to the contrary, there now exist several theoretical perspectives on global and local development that do not seem to be “talking to each other.” With this course, I hope to begin a conversation among competing multidisciplinary perspectives of the current state of global capitalism and local development and the relation between the two.

Social Inequality [учебная программа]
Опубликовано на портале: 02-10-2003
Susan W. Hinze
Fall 2001
Our positions in the social structure (based upon social class, race or ethnicity, and gender) shape the opportunities and constraints we encounter as we move through our lives. Class, race or ethnicity, and gender are considered different but interrelated (not simply additive) axes of social structure. The structural pattern that emerges from this matrix affects individual consciousness, group interaction and group access to institutional power and privilege. Whether we like the current stratification system or not (and, we generally like it when our status gives us advantage and dislike it when we are disadvantaged), our job as social scientists is to understand it. How did the stratification system come about? Is it natural? How is it maintained or reproduced? These are some of the questions we will consider as the semester unfolds.
