This seminar will explore a wide range of issues on social justice, social identity and intergroup relations, community, and everyday politics and democracy. It will examine the possibilities for building community across race, gender, class, sexual orientation and religion 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 build vibrant communities and a strong 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 inequalities?
