This course analyzes conflicting theoretical perspectives on the origins, significance and experiences of social inequality. Empirical studies of inequality will be examined as they reveal issues of the nature and representation of work, property rights and relations, differential experiences of embodiment, and different assessments of the mind and intelligence. The approach is phenomenological and asks: How are inequalities made social and how might they be disrupted?
Open to Undergraduate students.
