Class Details

This course is an invitation to engage in Social Justice Education, an interdisciplinary field of study that seeks to understand the power dynamics of the United States in order to more fully work towards the ideals of equality and opportunity for all. We will spend time learning about oppression and liberation theories and studying different manifestations of oppressions, including racism, sexism, gender identity, classism, ableism, heterosexism, and anti-Semitism. Investigations into these topics will include academic scholarship, experiential activities, dialogue, personal reflection, independent research, and a final project. Students must be open to a personal, dyanmic, and engaged educational experience.
