Seminar in Sociology

PREREQUISITES: 3 COURSES IN SOCIOLOGY, INCLUDING SOC-UA 1 OR SOC-UA 2 OR SOC-UA 3 OR PERMISSION OF INSTRUCTOR.

An hour is not just an hour, a day not just a day. Time functions as both a shared mechanical and social construction around which we create our daily lives, plan for our future and locate our history. Yet individuals also differently perceive, experience and control time depending on their status in society. This course explores this subject of time from a sociological perspective, with a particular focus on inequality and stratification. How, why and by whom is time measured and organized? How do race/ethnicity, gender and social class shape experiences, perceptions and use of time? How are these differential perceptions and experiences shaped by our institutions, systems of governance and structural conditions? We will answer these questions by focusing on such areas as work, education, health, neighborhoods and the family. DEPARTMENT CONSENT REQUIRED
