SOC 320 - Social Class, Inequality and Technology


Why are some people so much wealthier than others? Why has the income gap between white and Black families not improved in the U.S. for fifty years? How is technology used to police the poor? In this course, we will address these and other questions in pursuit of understanding economic inequality in the 21st century. We will also come to understand how economic inequality intersects with racial, ethnic, and gendered inequality. We will pay particular attention to the role of technology in amplifying some patterns of inequality while minimizing others. Course Codes: BR.
