Course Description:

This course is an introduction to contemporary social issues in the United States.  Special emphasis will be placed throughout the course on students examining their own social realities, their educational experiences, social relationships and power dynamics.  This course will extensively draw upon Ethnic Studies and the Chicano/Latino experience for historical examples of colonialism and resistance. The Theater of the Oppressed will be used within the course as a creative and highly interactive method for student engagement.  Students can expect to infuse the curriculum with their own particular interests and questions. Students may meet the General Education (GE) requirement in the Whole Person (Area E).
