Inequality and Social Movements: Gender, Race, Class, Sexualities

The causes and consequences of inequality are an enduring concern within the study of sociology. Our faculty conducts research on these topics using a wide range of substantive, methodological, and theoretical approaches. This is reflected in a broad range of classes, such as "Ethnic and Race Relations”, “Social Inequality”, and "Social Movements and Social Change", in which students engage with theories of how gender, race, class, and sexuality are created and organized and how these operate to produce power and resistance.
