BK 138 Race, Class, and Gender (Fall: 3)
Cross Listed with
Satisfies Cultural Diversity Core Requirement
Viewing race, class, gender, sexuality, and other identities as inseparable
from discussions of inequality and power, this course will begin by discussing
the social construction of these categories and how they are connected.
We will then look at how these social identities shape and are also shaped
by four general subject areas: (1) wealth and poverty, (2) education, (3)
family, and (4) crime, law, and social policy. Although this course is separated
into subject areas, we shall see that these areas greatly overlap and are
mutually influenced by one another.
