Topics course. Who Counts? This seminar will examine the ways in which we ask and answer questions about inequality. We will study inequality and related social policy in the United States, with special attention to the methodological choices of the authors we read, and the kinds of answers that these methodological choices make possible or foreclose. We will draw on texts from political science, sociology, and anthropology, and the reading list for the course will be adjusted as we go to ensure that the interests of the participants in the seminar are well represented.
