Society is a clash of identities. This can be seen in the struggle over LGBTQ rights, the rise of nationalism, racial profiling by police and border agents against people of colour, and the ongoing inequalities faced by Indigenous peoples. Students will look at the implications of these confrontations over identity. They will be challenged to identify the underlying sociological causes of contemporary social, political, and economic events.
SOC 200 is an approved Self and Society course for Cap Core requirements.
