This course explores the etiology and effects of prejudice and discrimination from multiple perspectives. Anthropological, economic, historical, psychological, religious, sociobiological, and sociological approaches to understanding will be examined in addition to the depiction of prejudice and discrimination in literature and art. Topics may include well-recognized forms of prejudice and discrimination, such as racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, homophobia, the exploitation and domination of indigenous peoples, and less obvious forms such as ageism, sizeism, and classism. Students will critically evaluate the various approaches to understanding prejudice and the ramifications of discrimination.
