About the content

When you notice inequality in your everyday life, do you ever wonder where it comes from, and what keeps it going?

This sociology course introduces you to core concepts of class, gender, and racial inequality, and an approach to studying complex forms of inequality called intersectionality. Featuring interviews with top scholars and discussion of the full-length award winning documentary, China Blue, which follows the life of a young seventeen-year-old worker from Sichuan province, to a Chinese jeans factory, this course will transform your perspective on yourself and others.

No previous knowledge required. Global Sociology is highly recommended.
