Contemporary Social Structures


The objective of the course is to familiarize the students with the main contributions of sociology on the processes of structuring contemporary social inequality. The different theoretical approaches to the structuring axes of inequality (especially class, gender, ethnicity and age) and their empirical application will be worked on. The theoretical approaches and the historical framework are basically limited to the formation of Western patriarchal capitalist societies

Students must develop the necessary learning skills to collect, process and analyze information in a critical manner, as well as to compare and define the implications of the main contemporary sociological debates on social structures, and to analyze the different ideological readings of inequality from a comparative perspective.

Courses generally have little or no prerequisite knowledge required for a given topic, however if students face any doubts, we recommend they contact course professors to clarify.
