Primary Instructor:

This course encourages students to consider their own positions as 'insiders' and 'outsiders' in a pluralistic society.

The short readings, in particular the works of fiction, describe events that profoundly affect people in racially mixed communities. Reading about the lives of fictional characters who are acting at crucial times, the students will discuss and write about the events, relating them to their own lives and the lives of others. They will explore their own preconceptions and challenge their own attitudes. We will also explore the barriers created by class and gender. Students will write five 4-5 page papers; some will be discussed in conference; all will be submitted in revised form. The papers will include expository and personal experience essays and some in-class writings. The midterm and final exams will require out-of-class essays based on the course work.
