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.
