SOC 3270 Intersectionality (3 credits)
This course will explore the complexity of the interaction of race, class, gender, sexuality, citizenship and age on the life chances and positioning of people within social environments. As part of this exploration we will examine aspects of inequality and privilege and the social and political implications of hierarchies. We will also look at how the nature of race, sexuality and gender can create hybrid identities, and communities and cultures that resist and reinforce ethnic and national boundaries.
