SOCI 403 - Ethnic Relations

(3 cr) The content of the course goes beyond the literal meaning of its title. It involves an analysis of stratification based on race, ethnicity, gender, class, and other social categories such as caste. Such a structure is not deliberate, but rather dictated by the inextricable relationship and uniformity of the consequences of the various forms of stratification. While emphasis is placed on the social arrangements in the American society, the issues are also examined from a cross-cultural perspective. The course tries to provide a general theoretical framework of stratification by exploring the factors, the process, and the consequent tensions and hostilities associated with it.
