Phone: +61 2 9114 1481
Although our current era is characterized by the unprecedented legitimacy of equality as an ideal and as a political norm, it is marked by vast social and economic inequalities. This unit seeks to explain this paradoxical situation. It introduces students to some of the central theoretical questions; investigates the historical development of inequality within and between countries; and examines some of the key mechanisms through which inequality is produced in modern societies. It concludes by considering possible alternatives and responses.
