INVITED RESOURCE. ASA President Michèle Lamont introduces students to the cultural processes of the production of social inequality in this graduate level seminar. Topics include: microsociology, the production of social and symbolic boundaries; cultural scripts in the construction of stigma; new developments in the study of identity, ethno-racial and class cultures; moral schemas; evaluation; and the conceptualization of contexts and explanations in cultural sociology. The course is primarily oriented toward students who are planning to do research in cultural sociology and inequality, but may also be of interest to scholars working in fields such as race and ethnicity, education, organization, public policy and other related fields.
