Modern life is marked by profound economic and social inequality. This unit guides students into their own research on the dimensions, causes, and consequences of inequality, with a special focus on Sydney. Students will learn in a hands-on way, combining quantitative and qualitative approaches to social reality. They will learn practical skills in data visualisation with state-of-the-art software, and be asked to think creatively about responses to the processes reproducing inequality.
