LSTU-L 385 Class, Race, Gender & Work, Class Number 4653; 3 cr.
Organized around discussion forums, this course provides an overview
of racial/ethnic, class, and gender systems of domination, with an
emphasis on the workings of such systems in the US. We begin with
historical overviews of ethnic/racial groups and move from there to
political economic structures and outcomes: the distributions of
resources, occupations, income, and political power. Throughout the
course we intersperse short sociological readings with readings on
the political economy of work in American society. Instructor: M.
Thandabantu Iverson, LSP, IUN.
