Seminar: PS 363:
Gender and Race in American Political Thought
Oregon State University, Political Science

This course analyses various forms of the social construction of gender, race, age and class in American political thought.

First, we will discuss some background theories of social construction, race, gender, class and age, then provide a historical overview, and consider current manifestations of such constructions in contemporary discourse. Students are provided with a selection of theoretical texts and other materials, but are required to find some source materials of their own in order to finish the class with a brief research paper of their own.

This course fulfills the Baccalaureate Core requirement for the Difference, Power and Discrimination category by discussing and analyzing theories and representations of race, gender and class. This course combines approximately 90 hours of instruction, online activities, and assignments for 4 credits. This course has no prerequisites.
