How do you recognize a persons class before you know anything about them?
Indicators of class:
Clothing ------------------------ misleading because this may not be consistent with lives at home
Body language and speech ---------
Grooming
Neighborhood ------- gratification
Associates (willingly)
Occupation
Hobbies/leisure/vacation
Food ------ may favour more variety of foods (cultural omnivores not really a clear class)
Education
Material goods ----- may buy things that are out of their range but they still buy it
Income/wealth
*course material* lecture resources* theorist work sheet* -- for the test
shift in social inequality research
- Traditional understandings of class Marx extended by Weber
- Occupation linked with income
- Participation in work allows people to earn an income*
Marx believed that people wanted to work --- produtive ad ejoyale = people wanted to
do this
- Capitalism is the prob. (ALIENTATION)
- Alienates people from the enjoyable and productive aspect of life (perverts
understanding of work)
DIMENSION = the specifiable aspect of the variable
Conflict Perspective
Functionalist Perspective
Marx, Weber * (classical)
Durkheim* (classical)
Erik Olin Wright, Dahrendort*
(contemporary//neo-Marxist)
Parsons, Davidson and Moore (contemporary)
WEALTH --- more inequality that INCOME
Dimensions can be measured in different ways
Intersectionality:
Interactions between meaningful social statuses such as race, class and gender that impact
opportunities and life trajectories *Kenshaw* -- how people see things

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
