SOC 501

Making a Living: Sociology of Work

This course examines work as a central human activity. At different points in our lives, we all end up participating in work, in its varied forms. Work is a source of identity and meaning in life. The organization of work in current times, however, is problematic. As presently organized, for many, it is alienating, unchallenging, precarious, and devalued. This course questions why and how work is presently organized, and how it can, and has been envisioned differently.
