SOCI S-108 Summer Seminar: Inequality and Social Mobility In America
planning ahead for next summer?
Check back in January, when we'll post the general course listings for 2018. If you join our email list, we'll contact you when the information is live.
The United States is currently experiencing high levels of income and wealth inequality and comparatively low levels of social mobility. This seminar asks why this is and what, if anything, should be done about it. We consider both social and individual explanations for inequality and social mobility, and we examine efforts to increase mobility through educational and legal means.
Tuesdays, Thursdays, 3:15-6:15 pm
William James Hall 305
