SOCI 4916 Gender and Work 3/0/3
Prerequisite: SOCI 1101
This seminar explores the intersections of gender and work. The work we do and are expected to do are influenced in large part by our sex and gender. This course will examine how gender influences our ideas of work, how it affects the ways in which work is structured, how work is divided, how work is rewarded, and how work and family compete in a contemporary society. Special attention will be paid to occupational segregation (both horizontal and vertical), wage inequality, and articles, discussion, films, and other media to meet the objectives.
