PSC 313 - Politics of Race, Gender and Class

3.00 credit hours
This course analyzes the interrelationship of race, class and gender to explore how each has shaped the experiences of all people in the United States. It investigates these interlocking categories of experiences and conceptualizes them as interactive systems, not just as separate features of experience. The underlying perspective of this course is that race, class and gender are part of the whole fabric of experience for all groups, not just women and people of color. As such, the course focuses on the institutional or structural basis for race, class and gender relations; the influence of race, class and gender in shaping social and political policy; the extent to which politics affects our understanding of race, class and gender, and how these categories illuminate or obscure our understanding of contemporary political issues.
