Sociology of dominant-minority relations in contemporary American society. Attention to specific ethnic, religious, and racial minorities in terms of prejudice and discrimination. This course will introduce the historical study of intergroup relations and cultural differentiation. This course will also provide an understanding of how intergroup relations continually change, the entry on new groups of immigrants or refugees and rising social conflicts between native-born racial or ethnic groups within the U.S. Minority groups in America will focus on the intricate connections between recurring patterns that are influenced by economic, political, psychological, and sociological factors.
Look forward to seeing you in class.
