SOCIOL 2R03 Quiz #1
Chapter 1
Inequality’s core dimensions
oClass
oRace
oGender
Some dimensions are bound together and hard to disentangle
oRace
oEthnicity
oReligion
Dimensions of an Unequal World
Luck is important in society
oHaving access to right schools, financial resources, business and professional contacts
and particular opportunities
Strata: layers with discernible borders between the levels
Social stratification: how the inequalities in society are sorted into identifiable layers of persons
with common characteristics
oThese layers are social classes
oExample: most people call themselves middle class, because it seems too “uppity” to
label yourself as upper class, yet nobody wants to admit to being lower class because
that could be associated with failure
Sociological perspective of social inequality seeks to examine patterns going beyond certain
scenarios to explore differences in the constraints that shape people’s choices
oTries to dig deeper in a macro perspective, not micro
Interested in how inequality is structured – systematic inequality
Key theme: who we become is part of a complicated interplay outcome, between individual
characteristics and our role in society (this determines which characteristics are encouraged,
constrained and rewarded)
Social imagination: awareness of micro personal experience and the relation to that with macro
society

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!
