In this course, we will examine how experiences of privilege and oppression are shaped by individual understandings, interpersonal interactions, groups, social constructions, societal structures and historical forces. Cultural, institutional and organizational contributions to privilege and oppression will be considered. From a standpoint of human rights, we will identify systems of oppression that need to be eradicated. We will address how privilege and oppression are maintained through mechanisms such as marginalization, exploitation, violence and cultural hegemony and will analyze various forms of personal and social action that can address injustice and produce change.
