TOPIC: Work in the New Economy This course is an overview of a sociological understanding of work, and in particular, how work reduces or replicates inequality based on gender, race, and class. We will explore classic and contemporary sociological theories of work, how work in the U.S. has changed over time, and how workers are matched to "good" and "bad" jobs. Threaded through the course is the exploration of barriers to racial, gender, and class inclusion and advancement at work; we will explore how organizational structures, policies, and practices can increase or decrease those barriers. Students should be prepared for intensive study and discussion of challenging ideas.
