SOC 102 - Race, Class, Gender & Sexuality


This course addresses the multiple and intersecting ways race, class, gender, sexuality, individual life chances, and daily social interactions affect the larger society, we first take a detailed look at each of the core concepts: race, class, gender, and sexuality. Studying the “socially constructed” nature of these concepts, we ask what meanings and values have been attached to them, and how these social constructions help to rationalize and justify social inequality. We then analyze the significance of race, class, gender, and sexuality in a variety of institutional and interpersonal contexts, including schools, the workplace, families and relationships, and the criminal justice system.
