SOC 4750

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

Specialized knowledge and know how underlie the division of knowledge in the technology sectors of advanced economies, yet we know surprisingly little about the institutional properties of how knowledge and opportunity are organized. In the global economy entrepreneurs are reshaping regional economies and structures of opportunity. Knowledge economies have emerged as regional centers of innovative activity and knowledge spillover. Understanding jobs, careers and social mobility in the knowledge economy involves a focus on social networks and institutions. The course will draw on evidence from New York City's emergent knowledge economy, Silicon Valley and the Boston area. Enrollment limited to a seminar course.
