PHL 115 - Race, Gender, and Sexuality (3 Cr.)

An introduction to the theories of oppression and privilege, with particular attention paid to racism, sexism, and heterosexism. The readings analyze the nature of social identity and difference, including the intersections of sexuality, gender, and race on the individual and social levels. We will examine oppression and privilege as systems and structures, which are maintained and sustained by social practices, language, education, and cultural production. We will also examine these areas as possible sites of resistance. Fall semester. Grebowicz.
