Courses I Teach

  • SOC/GNDR 3380 - Race, Ethnicity, Class and Gender.
    This course is an historical, theoretical, and ultimately, sociological exploration of race, ethnicity, class, and gender as axes of inequality in the United States, while recognizing that these axes are also fundamental sources of identity and community. Materials examine the complex interaction between personal experiences and social structures as students explore how individuals carry varying degrees of penalty and privilege depending on their position along axes of race, ethnicity, and gender in a complex matrix that affects everyone in society. Students will be invited to explore the ways that people experience and respond to the matrix, that is, structures of racial/ethnic, class, and gender differences, and the ways that people help to reinforce and reshape those structures
