course overview
Intersections of Power and Identity offers a comprehensive analysis of the ways that gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, and nation operate in our daily lives. These are socially constructed identifiers that establish our status in a hierarchical society. They are the trajectories of power that shape society and all of its institutions.

The 4 CEU credit course covers the meaning of intersectional power, the colonial context which laid the foundations for contemporary power,  the ways they are maintained, and social movements that seek to transform society from hierarchy to equality.
