DIVERSITY IN THE US   [Archived Catalog]
2019-2020 Greensburg Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Who is an American? What does it mean to be American? What are the issues surrounding education as practice and as policy in the varied social context of the U.S.? This course explores the multi-layered and overlapping fields of identity in the United States from an anthropological perspective. Underpinning the various topics in the course are understandings of the interplay of culture (including language), power, and history. The particular fields that we shall examine include ethnicity, race, gender and sexualities, and class to better gain insight into the very meaning of the term "diversity" in the lives of "Americans."
