In a multicultural society, discussion about issues of conflict and community are needed to facilitate understanding between social groups. In this intergroup dialogue, students will participate in semi-structured face-to-face meetings with students from other social identity groups. They will discuss relevant reading material and they will explore their own and the other group's experiences in various social and institutional contexts. Participants will examine narratives and historical, psychological and sociological materials that address each group's experience within a U.S. context. Students will participate in exercises that will be debriefed in class. They will learn about pertinent issues facing the participating groups on campus and in society. The goal is to create a setting in which students engage in open and constructive dialogue, learning, and exploration concerning issues of intergroup relations, conflict and community. STUDENTS INTERESTED IN THIS COURSE MUST FILL OUT A PLACEMENT FORM AT WWW.UMICH.EDU/~IGRC (IN ADDITION TO REGULAR REGISTRATION PROCEDURES). DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, STUDENTS WHO DO NOT ATTEND THE MASS MEETING ON THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS WILL BE WITHDRAWN FROM THE COURSE.
