Complex Inequalities

  • 7.5 credits

This course examines the cultural and structural dynamics of inequality. We take up core debates about the causes and consequences of inequality addressing social change and resistances.

The course seeks to integrate an intersectional approach, including class, gender, ethnicity, age and migrant status in relation to social processes both within and beyond the state. We explore topics such as borders and belonging, migration and global inequality, capabilities and agency, and lived experiences and their spatial and temporal dimensions. The course emphasizes student learning through innovative teaching techniques such as co-teaching across disciplines and methodologies, participatory forums and a student Course Portfolio based on a set of smaller and reflective assignments.
