In this course we will explore how race, class, and gender inequalities are interconnected. The course is organized around key topics including social/historical constructions of race, class, and gender; violence based on racism, sexism, and heterosexism; the new global economy; families; education; media and stereotyping; health and reproduction; and criminal justice. Students will gain insight into how race, class, and gender shape our interactions in everyday life as well as the social ramifications of racism, sexism, heterosexism, and classism in U.S. history. Required Readings Andersen, Margaret L. & Patricia Hill Collins. 2007. Race , Class, & Gender: An Anthology , Sixth Edition. Belmont, CA: Thomson & Wadsworth. Other required readings are available on-line through the course web-site (HuskyCT). Students are responsible for all materials presented and discussed in class as well as for the assigned book above and readings posted on HuskyCT. HuskyCT is an important tool in this class. I will regularly post grades, updated syllabus, and outlines for class lectures. I will also make announcements via HuskyCT, so you are encouraged to check your account regularly during the week. 1

Participation (10%) Participation is a graded element of this course and is essential to an effective learning experience. Participation credit will be evaluated based on your attendance and participation in instructor-led and student panel-led class discussions. This includes contributing your thoughts and ideas in discussions, raising relevant questions, and showing your engagement with the readings for the week, class lectures, and other class materials like films, etc. I will require that above all else students maintain a respectful attitude in their participation. You will certainly not all agree with each other on the issues we address in this class, but we require that you respect each other. Respect can be shown in the tone of voice you use, by not cutting a person off when she or he speaks, and by taking opinions seriously even when you disagree. Behaviors that are distracting to your peers and to me (e.g. coming in late, packing up or leaving early, having side conversations, and showing a disrespectful attitude in discussions) are not acceptable and will negatively impact your participation grade.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
