FYS 1011 - People Like Us: Class and Race in the USA

Hours: 4
People Like Us explores the social process of creating and justifying inequality within human communities. Through readings, films, and active discussion, we will explore the ways our community, our country, and our world are stratified—and we will ask how such inequalities can be addressed. We will pay particular attention to the ways that socially and historically constructed differences of class and racial identity structure individuals’ unequal access to education, jobs, and other social resources. Using the example of the common book and other sources, we will talk about how groups are defined as naturally “belonging” or marked as “Other” within national and local communities.
