This course provides an introduction to the study of social inequality. An analysis of the structure and dynamics of social inequality, focusing upon competing theoretical explorations and empirical investigation of different arrangements by which wealth, power, and prestige are distributed in human societies. We will examine the process of inter-generational mobility , explore the influence of contextual or structural factors on the process of mobility, assess differences by race and gender in the process of mobility, and compare the level of mobility experienced in the U.S. to other countries. Three lecture hours per week.
