The purpose of the course is to provide students with specific multicultural conflict management and resolution skills. Students will learn techniques that can be useful in identifying, understanding, and solving conflicts in more just, peaceful, sustainable, structural, and ethical ways, particularly among individuals with membership in groups of diverse class, race/ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, and other identity backgrounds. Our goal is to create a teaching/learning environment that promotes a deeper understanding of the changing, complex, and conflictive nature of inter-group relations. This environment will promote dialogue, cooperation, learning, and transformation. We will explore mechanisms and strategies that turn stratified, dominant, and unjust differences into differences that enrich personal life, social relationships, our society, and our world. The course’s pedagogy involves students and teachers as partners in learning. It is based on the principle that learning and teaching is a cooperative and dialogic process that incorporates valuable contributions from all. Readings, two exams, keeping a journal, participating in a dialogue-group project, and writing a course portfolio of your learning in this class are among the course requirements.
