ISP 224 Constructions of Difference in the U.S.A.

3 hours 

The population of the United States is perhaps the most diverse in the world, incorporating peoples from every corner of the earth with a wide range of beliefs, histories, lifestyles, and goals. Sometimes this diversity has been tolerated, but at other times it has created tension, conflict, and even violence. Drawing on texts from the humanities and the social sciences, this interdisciplinary course will explore the various ways that difference - racial, ethnic, economic, educational, sexual orientation, gender, disability, religious, linguistic, and regional - has been constructed in the USA.
