SOC 436 Women and Work

This course examines “work” as a site of uneven power for women, and interrogates the contexts of paid and unpaid labor across different social contexts. Additionally, the course explores how race, class, gender, citizenship status, and geography intersect to produce constrained agency for women laboring under global capitalism. This advanced course in sociology provides enhanced training in qualitative research methods.
