Sociology 229: Graduate Seminar on Inequality in East Asia



Sociology 229 is a graduate seminar with the specific pedagogical purpose of developing a new Harvard general education undergraduate course on inequality and society in Japan, Korea, and China, to be taught in Spring 2010 for the first time.  Graduate students participating in the fall seminar will have the opportunity to develop the syllabus for a course they themselves anticipate having in their “tool kit” when they embark on their professional academic career.  The seminar will offer intellectual resources to support such an endeavor, and each student’s final project will be a sample syllabus on aspects of East Asian economic development and social change in which they are most keenly interested.
