	Over the last two decades, the term "minority" has expanded from its
erstwhile reference to Blacks to include-in a broadened description-other
people of color, women and homosexuals.  This
expansion of the term "minority" has created a host of new challenges in the
American political system.  This course is geared toward helping students to
understand the political connotations of the term "minority" as well as the
manner in which different minority groups play the political game.  The
class will be taught as a lecture course featuring debates, panel
discussions, group projects, videos and role-playing sessions to be based
mainly on the weekly readings.  Final grades will be based on a mid-term
examination, a final examination, one-page weekly (or bi-weekly) homework
assignments, a group project, and class participation.
