Course Description In this seminar we explore the sociology of classification, a subfield that critiques the ways society measures differences like race, gender, ability, and other classifications that communicate social worth. Over the course of the semester, students will explore four questions:
  1. How does society construct and understand categories of difference;
  2. How do people experience and resist categories of social difference in themselves;
  3. How do members of society experience and perceive difference in others; and
  4. How does social difference shape institutions like the family, education, employment, and government?
Students will leave the course with the ability to identify areas of social difference and critique the ways measurement creates inequality in the social world.
