American Diversity - this interdisciplinary course uses educational theory of social justice, draws on historical movements in the United States and abroad, and gives students an opportunity to reflect about themselves and the diverse society in which we live. In this course, we will explore important questions, such as: How are we socialized into our current belief systems and how does that impact our understanding of diversity and oppression? What is the difference between diversity and social justice? How does oppression play out on individual, cultural and institutional levels? Can community service be used as an effective learning tool in understanding these issues? How does knowledge of self enhance our capacity for learning and service?
