SOC-361 Intersections of Race, Ethnicity and Gender

This course will engage students in past and current debates about how constructions of race, ethnicity and gender are interwoven throughout US society. Although this course is primarily taught from a sociological perspective, we will also examine biological, psychological, anthropological, economic and historical arguments. Some examples of topics we will discuss include white privilege, patriarchy, the Civil Rights era, solidarity movements, hate crime, sentencing disparities and sexual violence, to name a few.
