Identity and Diversity in American Contexts

Section 64100

  • Note: Given the nature of the writing curriculum and the workshop format of the class, joining a Writing 150 section after the second week of the semester places a student at a severe disadvantage in terms of the goals and requirements of the course. For this reason, requests to add 150 during the third week are usually denied. On the basis of extraordinary circumstances, a student may initiate an exception request at the Writing Program main office in JEF 150; such requests require administrative approval..
    This section of Writing 150 will enable students to practice the skills of critical thinking, sound reasoning, and rhetorical awareness through an investigation of social issues related to identity and diversity. The course will examine identity as a socially constructed phenomenon that determines differentials of power and opportunity in an increasingly diverse and intersectional world. Students will analyze various groups whose biological, cultural, and socialized identities are shaped by--and help shape--systems of race, class, gender, sexuality, and/or national power.
