EDU442 Race, Class, Gender, and Disability in American Education

Explores how and in what ways schools produce inequalities based on socially constructed conceptions of identity (e.g., race, class, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, and language). Students will critically analyze relevant literature and their own experiences as raced, classed, gendered, (dis)abled, etc. individuals to develop an understanding of how educational institutions serve as agents of the transmission of social injustice. Students will understand race, class, gender, (dis)ability and other identity markers as intersected and mutually constituted, not as isolated variables. Examines how human diversity shapes and is shaped by our lives, and how the transformation of social and educational practices might re-shape lives.
