This course examines the dimensions and magnitude of inequality in industrial societies, with a heavy emphasis on the United States since the mid-20th century. The readings and class discussion are designed to expose students to a broad range of influential pieces in the social stratification literature. In particular, we will study inequality through: pay for work, race, neighborhoods, gender, family, mobility, education, social capital, and rising income inequality since 1980.
