FYSP 131 - Let’s Talk About P.E.O.P.L.E.

FC SSCI WINT
4 credits
What is privilege? What is White privilege? Why do Black lives matter? Does being gay or straight matter? This seminar focuses on how systems of oppression work, what privilege looks like in everyday life, and how to change our “beliefs” about justice and equality into “practice”. Students learn to identify ways in which the dimensions of diversity shape their inner thoughts, perceptions, beliefs, interactions, and behaviors. They will gain a better understanding of how they show up in the world. In this course, students will explore the historical background and problem of privilege via an interactive and experiential format.
