sociology’s greatest hits 2010-2019: #1 – the complete and utter domination of inequality in sociology

If we define inequality research as scholarship that takes status differences as a main focus, then sociology is deep, deep in the grip in inequality research. This might include theoretical attempts to integrate inequality theory (e.g., intersectionality, or the Emirbayer/Desmond book Bourdieu in race), promote inequality research as canon (e.g., DuBois and The Scholar Denied), exploring nitty gritty interactionism around inequality (e.g., Calarco on schooling or Rivera on elite hiring) or how organizations create and promote inequality (e.g. Ray on racialized organizations or Tomaskovic-Devey on relational inequality). The question for sociology in the 2020’s is whether this is peaking or whether sociology will stabilize and become a de facto discipline of inequality research.
