   Information for Students Studying for the Inequalities and Social Justice Preliminary

The Inequalities and Social Justice area committee has substantially changed the exam format
from previous years. Examinees will choose to read in one of two main areas: Either (1) Politics
and Social Movements or (2) Gender, Race, and Class Reproduction. Within your main area,
select a focus and read the complete set of readings for that plus the mandatory readings for the
other subject(s) in your main area. For example, if you chose Gender as your focus, you would
read all the gender selections plus the mandatory readings for Race and for Class Reproduction.

The exam will consist of three sets of questions. Each set will contain at least two questions and
students must answer one question in each set. Two sets will pertain to the student‟s focus area
and a third set will pertain to the other subject(s) in that main area. So, for example, a student
with a Social Movements focus would answer two questions about that subject and one question
about Politics. A student with a Gender focus would answer two questions about that subject
and one question from the third set. The third set might include two Race questions or two Class
Reproduction questions or possibly one of each.

While we encourage students to write practice answers under time pressure in order to simulate
examination conditions, committee members will no longer read practice answers. In the past,
this led to students spending too much time carefully crafting one or two questions for faculty
review rather than preparing for a multiple number of possible questions.

You will notice that with few exceptions, when a book is on the list we specified only certain
chapters. You should nevertheless get a general sense of the book‟s full argument and the data
used. Thus, while you are not responsible for details about the book (except for the assigned
chapters, where details will provide material for crafting an answer), you should be familiar with
the overall outlines of the argument. Book reviews in AJS, Contemporary Sociology, Social
Forces and elsewhere will be helpful in this task.

Your answers should show that you have critically thought enough about a content area that you
can identify, explain and illustrate the key themes, plus be able to take positions and back up
those positions (or multiple positions pertinent to an issue). In order to do this, you need to be on
top of content, theoretical issues, and methods/research issues.

The Chair of the Inequalities and Social Justice Committee will be glad to meet with you. For
2007-08 that person is Douglas Schrock.
