SOCI 4119 - Urban Inequality
Sociology Advanced Seminar: Amidst increasing racial and ethnic diversity in the United States, there is growing concern that racial and ethnic minorities in American cities will face even greater inequalities with respect to access to housing, resources, educational/employment opportunities, etc. This seminar critically examines how racial/ethnic inequality is generated and maintained in contemporary American society. The readings will cover major theoretical approaches and (quantitative and qualitative) empirical investigations of racial and ethnic stratification in several urban cities, notably, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, D.C. This course will also explore the merits and limitations of various paradigms that aim to explain racial inequalities and the concomitant social policies that have been implemented and/or proposed to address the same.
