The course explores race, gender, and class as intersecting relations that have applicability to academic and working contexts, as well as and applicability to our everyday lives and relationships. Concepts and arguments from the social sciences and humanities dealing with race, gender, and class in inter-related combinations not just as stand-alone concepts will be studied and applied in the course. Course material will focus on but not be limited to Canada and the US. Course material will also have an emphasis on aboriginal issues in Canada. Students will gain opportunities to critically reflect on their own situatedness within these intersections. Additionally, students will learn strategies for critical self-awareness, response, and alliance building that they can take to communities where they work and live.
