X376: Exploring Identity in Splash Spring 2016 (Mar. 12, 2016)
What is gender? How does race affect our lives today? What does it mean to be queer? These are some of the questions that we will ask in this interactive introduction to identity. In this class, we will explore the cultural contexts surrounding identity, with an emphasis on intersectionality. We will examine the concepts of privilege, power, and identity, and how those concepts form a framework for interpreting the world. Using this information, we will also work on skills that will help enable a richer understanding of media and better interpersonal relationships. We will examine relevant cultural phenomenon as well as personal experience, so please feel free to bring in personal stories, questions, and/or examples! There will be snacks.
