Description

The three recent crises—economic (the Great Recession), racial (post-George Floyd), and public health (the COVID-19 pandemic)—have created an increased awareness of the systemic nature of inequalities in the United States. In this context, this course is designed to enable a deeper understanding of the causes, dimensions, and consequences of social inequality in the United States. The course is divided into two sections. The first section will examine various theoretical perspectives on social inequality. In the second section, we will explore multiple dimensions of social inequality, including wealth and income inequality, racial and gender inequality, educational inequality, health inequality, and the intersection of class, race/ethnicity, and gender in producing unequal outcomes.
