The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination|
This seminar will involve a psychological analysis of different forms of prejudice and discrimination, including racism, sexism, antisemitism, homophobia, and less recognized forms of bias, such as the exploitation and domination of indigenous peoples, animals, and the natural environment. During the first part of the term, students will read about and discuss specific forms of prejudice and discrimination. In the second half of the course, they will write a final paper and present a brief "address to humanity" on a prejudice-related topic.
