SOCY-453 Intersectionality: Theory and Practice (3)

This course foregrounds the ways gender, race, class, sexuality, and other dimensions of social differentiation organize our experiences in society and together shape social identities, social interactions, and social institutions. Intersectionality theory focuses on interconnected systems of social inequality with the express purpose of developing knowledge of the workings of these interlocking power relations in society. The course pushes beyond an intersectionality practice that "includes differences" and moves students toward practices of intersectionality that deploy knowledge of subjugated social groups with the intention of challenging and changing interrelated systems of social inequality. AU Core Integrative Requirement: Diversity and Equity. Crosslist: SOCY-653 .
