Social Class in Changing Times

The perception of social class often disregards broader factors such as privilege, power and global politics and economies. This course will introduce students to class distinctions inscribed by capital, new labour market relations, increasingly precarious work, poverty and wealth. Underpinning these themes will be a range of associated factors that affect how class operates in a changing world such as social inequality, new forms of poverty, resistance, and community building in an urban and global context.
