SO 321 - Special Topics: The Sociology of Work


 

This course provides an introduction to the sociology of work. Topics will include a number of important sociological themes: the history of work and labor, how and what we define as work, sectors of the economy, and the challenge of work/family balance.  We will study these topics with material at both the macro level of analysis (e.g., the occupational structure, the U.S. and global economies, changes of technology and demographics) and the micro level of analysis (e.g., the demands of workplaces and occupations on workers’ sense of self and identity; the influence of work on families), and with both qualitative and quantitative data.
