ILRIC 2310

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

This course will look at multiple dimensions of work and labor from a sociological perspective. We will consider not only the large-scale processes that influence the structure and shape of work, but also how those processes and structures affect individual workers and the strategies that individuals and groups use to improve labor market outcomes. Crucial to this endeavor is an acknowledgement that outcomes differ drastically depending on the identities and positionality of workers and this will be reflected throughout course content. Major topics of inquiry will include classic and contemporary theories of work and labor markets, race and ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, immigration, the role of unions and other worker collectives, and entrepreneurship.
