Social Inequality

Spring 2020

Taught By: Robin Wagner-Pacifici

Section: A

CRN: 6823

Credits: 3

This course will examine social inequality in all of its manifestations and will pose the question of what it means to fare well or to fare badly in societies in which work, property, bodies and minds are differentially valued and rewarded. Readings, films, and images presented in the course focus on our contemporary society as well as extend historically and cross-culturally. The course takes a phenomenological approach. The goal is to understand social inequalities from the inside, through experience, rather than from the outside, pre-determined by conventional labels, such as class, race, and gender.
