How do racial/ethnic inequalities affect possibilities for building community in a democratic society? Students will explore group identity, inequality, and community building in a democratic society, taking into account issues of power, conflict, coalition, and common ground. Emphasis will be placed on how these issues are dealt with in the U.S. presidential election as well as in case examples of ethnic/sectarian conflicts around the world. This course uses dialogue techniques for discussion within the class, exploration of the student's own social identity and the identities of their classmates, small group learning exercises, as well as reading and writing (two 15-page papers written in sections with feedback for revision). This course is part of two educational programs: The Michigan Community Scholars Program (a living-learning program located in Couzens Hall) and the Program on Intergroup Relations.
