GOVT-499 Dept Sem: Multiculturalism
Fall for 2016-2017
Cultural diversity has become a mainstay of contemporary political life. Diversity is viewed as a good in itself, but also blamed for different social ills. In this course, students will explore the relationships between multiculturalism and equality, and between multiculturalism and liberty, and the corollary question of how government should respond to claims of culture. Topics covered in the course include race, gender, religion, and ethnicity. More fundamentally, students will investigate the question: what is culture, and how and why does it matter?
