HU 140 - Cultural Diversity

This course will explore the construction, evolution, and application of categories and stereotypes related to the concept of the “other.”  Students will study discrimination, or “othering,” and how it operates in our contemporary culture among members of marginalized groups, including the categories of ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, and inclusivity.  In addition, students will explore cultural diversity in a global context. In order to understand what it means to be human, students will analyze relevant historical and contemporary cultural texts through the lens of the Humanities to examine the importance of embracing cultural difference.  Cultural texts may include: works of literature, drama, and poetry; music; theatre; film; advertisement; visual art; architecture; and more. Semester Credit Hours: 3.00 Contact Hours: 45/0/0/45 Prerequisite: None. Corequisite: None.
