SS 481 An Ethnographic Study: A Global Perspective (3)
This course is offered in conjunction with the Alternative Spring Break in which students will travel for one week to participate in the disaster relief efforts of a Hurricane Katrina devastated community. Students who are returning for the second year and who have completed SS 480 are eligible for this course. In preparation for this experience, students will examine communities throughout the world from a social structural perspective. Particular emphasis is placed on the centrality of class, race and gender as sources of division, inequality and injustice. Using demographics, students will engage in a comparative analysis of the community in the United States with a non-western community. Prerequisite: SS 480.
