ALS 259 - Citizenship, Democracy, and Identity 3 s.h.

This course considers the relationship between citizenship, democracy, and identity. We will examine what constitutes citizenship and how it is shaped by race, but also ethnicity, gender, class, and religion; how identity is constituted and shaped by race and these other contingent and non-contingent factors; and how citizenship and identity intersect in a democracy through forms of legitimate political representation, means of communication and participation, protest, pluralism, multiculturalism, identity politics, and voting. This course is encouraged for those considering careers in public affairs, international relations, social work, journalism, law, business, or education. A-E Only. Offered irregularly.
