S700 Topical Seminar I
Topic: Seminar in Social Stratification

Robert Robinson

This course is intended for students working on a research
project in social stratification, broadly conceived.  When they
enroll in the course, students are expected to have in mind a
project in this area that can be completed over the course of the
semester.  The product of the course is a paper suitable for
submission to a professional journal or meeting.  The course will
be run as a workshop in the practicalities of doing research,
writing up the results, and publishing.  Issues related to study
design, sampling, measurement, methods of data analysis,
interpretation, and writing, as these apply to the specific
projects being worked on, will be discussed each week.  Readings,
apart from those in the literature being drawn upon in each
project, will be minimal.  The research products will be
presented to the class at the end of the semester.
