Race in Everyday Space: The Psychological Impacts of Racism (FYS)
Fall 2020
Section: 01  

"We are all products of a racialized society, and it affects everything we bring to our interactions" (Oluo, 2018, p. 15). This seminar uses psychological theory and research as well as interdisciplinary scholarship (e.g., ethnic studies, history, sociology) to critically unpack this statement. Through the semester we examine the nature and experience of racially marginalized communities in the United States, and engage in critical analysis of the ways in which systems of power affect the everyday lives of racially marginalized communities. As a First Year Seminar, this course will emphasize the continued development of written and verbal communication skills.
