This course examines the degree of inequality along characteristics such as race, ethnicity, class, gender, age, physical ability, and sexual orientation. By describing trends over time within the United States, this class uses a comparative approach to emphasize the societal factors that explain why some groups suffer economic, political, and social (dis)advantage relative to other groups. Students will be encourages to think critically about the ways that these advantages and disadvantages are reproduced both intentionally and inadvertently through actions and interactions at the individual, organizational, and institutional levels.
