  Course Description
This course surveys the literature on the sociology of families. Theoretical perspectives are explored via empirical studies of change and variation in families and households. How families are defined, how they change as family members age and in the context of economic and political change, and how families reproduce social inequalities are among the central issues we study in historical and contemporary circumstances. Students will be encouraged to critically evaluate their own assumptions about families in the context of research evidence and theoretical insights.
