GINTC 6100 Identity and Belonging in a Categorized World

This course focuses on the co-construction of self and culture, our quest for belonging, and the complexities of categorizing humans by sex, race, and other markers. We consider the social, psychological and behavioral consequences of differing self-construals, and how these manifest themselves in everyday life. We draw attention to our pursuit of belonging in teams and social groups, and highlight the identity re-construction and renewed strivings for inclusion.




Usually offered fall and spring semesters.
