This seminar will explore a wide range of issues on social identity and intergroup relations, notions of community, and everyday democracy. It will examine the possibilities for building community across race, gender and class as students explore their own racial and other social group identities. How do we have constructive conversations and dialogue about our different perspectives, beliefs, experiences, and backgrounds? How do we develop the practice of civic engagement along with the skills of boundary-crossing to strengthen a diverse democracy in our schools, neighborhoods, cities, and governments? To what extent do the American ideals and its democratic principles continue to provide a bond for our society in the face of growing social divisions and inequities? Students from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to enroll in this seminar, bringing personal experience and perspective to enrich the discussion of theoretical readings. All students are expected to participate actively in class discussions, read carefully, and write extensively. Students will observe and participate in a number of engaging intergroup dialogue exercises and community-based activities.
