Course Description: This course examines social factors causing unequal distribution of social resources, especially focusing on race, ethnicity and gender, in an international perspective. It investigates the social construction of gender; how gender is conceived by social scientists; the process of socialization in terms of masculinity or femininity; and how social identities such as race and social class intersect with gender. Moreover, sociologists use the phrase social structure to describe the entire set of institutions within which we live our lives. Such institutions are gendered and domains of inquiry in this course include among others, marriage and family, education, work, media, immigration, religion, criminal justice, and social movements. Such contexts enable us to critically consider inequalities and social problems surrounding gender. Assessment: attendance and participation, mini-think assignments, two papers, three short quizzes.
