Course Description: Contemporary societies are characterized by social differences and inequalities. Sociological understandings of difference critically examine how differences are linked to social categories such as social class, sexuality, gender, ethnicity, age, religion, and disability. How differences are understood in society highlight socialization processes; a person’s choice and location; and structural inequalities. Systematic contemporary inequalities attached to social differences impact life chances that while seen as unjust, continue to exist. Social inequalities include income disparities, access to education, housing, work, and health. This course provides a comprehensive critical analysis of central social differences such as racialization processes and sexuality, and how, on both a national and international level, social difference relates to inequalities. This course examines sociological approaches to consider both the existence and reproduction of certain ideas of difference and the impacts of inequalities, and how conceptualizations of difference and inequality have changed in recent decades.
