SOC 235 - Class, Capital, and Inequality

4 credits (Spring)
In this course we will engage with traditional and contemporary debates on the role of class in allocating resources and influencing life chances within capitalist society.  We will necessarily interrogate the ways in which an individual’s class position informs and reflects experiences associated with race, gender, and sex, among other identities. Ultimately, we will consider the weight or force of class analytics in explaining social and economic inequality in the modern era.

Prerequisite: SOC 111 , ECN 111 , or POL 101 .
Note: Plus-2 option available. Not offered every year.
Instructor: Inglis
