About the Course
Graduate students explore the historical and social context of this disparity as well as overall differences in labor market outcomes between males and females during this accelerated course. Taught by Economics Professor Rebecca Harris, the mini-mester course condensed a semester’s work of lectures, class discussion and coursework into five long days, totaling 45 hours. The innovative week-long course challenged students to examine varying perspectives, research topics such as the intersection of gender and race and listen to personal insights from local business and civic leaders who stopped by to tell their stories.
