Our conceptions of ourselves and how we live with others in our
society are powerfully influenced by notions of race and gender.
These notions and their influence upon us will be explored from a
wide range of disciplinary perspectives, especially biological,
psychological, literary, and philosophical. The aim of this course
is to help students gain insight into their own lives as members of
a racially divided and gender-structured society. Students should
gain greater awareness and understanding of the racial and gender
issues that confront us in our everyday lives. Students will be
encouraged to think more critically, usefully, and-perhaps most
importantly-responsibly about those issues. A variety of texts and
videos will be critically examined throughout the term.
