Primary Instructor:

The purpose of the course is to provide students with specific multicultural communication and conflict-management resolution skills 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 would promote a deeper understanding of the changing, complex, and conflictive nature of inter-group relations, as well as to promote dialogue, cooperation, learning, and transformation. That is, we will explore mechanisms and strategies that could turn stratified, dominant, and unjust differences into differences that could enrich our personal life, our social relationships, our society, and our world. The course’s pedagogy involves students and teachers as partners in learning. It fosters diversity, teamwork, and encourages more profound thinking on our own social and personal values. It is based on the principle that learning and teaching is a cooperative and dialogic process that incorporates the valuable contributions from all. Hopefully, the substance of this course and how it’s taught will inspire all of us to further examine our own lives and the workings of the surrounding society by means of perspectives and insights gained from this introductory course.
