GRM 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Social Inequality

4 credits
This course introduces students to classical sociological thinking on inequality from Germany and elsewhere, including the works of Rousseau, Marx, Weber, and Bourdieu. Students will examine how social differences in categories of wealth, class, education, gender, race, religion, and more form cleavages in society, leading use to ask whether inequality is merely a founding issue of sociology or a crucial term for understanding increasing global problems should be discussed in the final part of the course. Taught in German.

Prerequisite: GRM 302  and GRM 303 .
Instructor: Sparschuh
