SOC 628: Families and Social Inequalities (3)

This course examines families in the context of social inequalities based on race-ethnicity, social class, gender, and sexuality. It analyzes the link between family diversity and social inequalities in the U.S. and elsewhere and theorizes families using a critical lens that focuses on social policies and power relations that perpetuate social inequalities. We also explore the growing complexities of families and how they affect and are affected by other social institutions, especially the labor market. Prerequisite: SOC 220 or consent of instructor.
