INTDS 200 - Exploring Difference: A Multidisciplinary Inquiry

Credits: 4
An exploration of the question of difference: from biology to psychology, sociology, economics, religion, ecology, and political science. Fundamental to the inquiry is an investigation of what actually constitutes “difference” among various populations. Students critically interrogate the accepted normative categories of “normalization” in order to determine what social fictions function as regimes of truth on the one hand and create marginalization on the other. Our main focus is on exploring the possibility of creating a just society with difference as part of the context of community.
