Primary Instructor:

This seminar will explore a number of topics related to how our bodies interact with the social world. Our experience of identity is shaped greatly by our sense of self but also by how other people and power structures view us. In this course we will cover numerous identities: race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, etc. We will understand how we construct identities individually and how society also constructs meaning for our identities. We will utilize readings primarily from psychology but also from law, sociology, and philosophy to achieve a more well-rounded perspective on the topics.

Grading criteria for this class include small group discussion work, two brief papers connecting personal experience with learning materials, a literature review, and presentation of the literature review.

Class Format:

The class is a combination of lecture and discussion, but small group and class discussion will be the main component. The course will meet 2 days a week.
