SERIES: Talking Across Differences: Intergroup Dialogue and Intersectionality
(Session 7 of 7)

The new University Program Group IV-A: "Studies in other forms of discrimination" focuses on the concept of intersectionality, how it is reflected in each individual's mix of social identities, and how it relates to discrimination based on social identity. Topics to be discussed include: (1) IV-A learning outcomes; (2) brief review of the study of intersectionality and how it informs our understanding of discrimination; and (3) the effect of the multiple identities characteristic of the students and the instructor on classroom learning. Exercises will focus on social identities and curricular development. The session is intended primarily for faculty teaching courses related to Group IV-A.
