Diversity, Solidarity and the American Mosaic

Diversity, Solidarity and the American Mosaic
Soc 8090, Topics in Sociology
Fri 2:30-5:00, 1114 Social Sciences
This graduate seminar builds upon the American Mosaic Project, an ongoing research effort in the department of Sociology. Americans celebrate diversity as never before, but still worry about the problems involved. How do Americans think about diversity? How is multiculturalism shaping the way we think about race, religion, and citizenship? What brings us together in this multicultural era? To what degree does diversity talk hide inequality?
The course is built around influential recent work engaging with the dynamic of diversity and solidarity, as well as direct exchanges with visiting scholars, including Alan Wolfe, Paul Lichterman, Ellen Berrey, Jen’nan Read, and Vincent Roscigno. Students from Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, American Studies and related disciplines are encouraged to join us.
