Sec LC2    MW    11:00 am - 3:20pm    10 credits   

CKR, SS- This class isn’t about fairy tales or happily ever after — it’s about real-life narratives and your story. In this 10 credit learning community, combining Sociology 150 and English 102, we will investigate fairness (or the lack thereof) using the sociological imagination. As we deconstruct institutionalized inequalities, looking at housing, income, education and more, we will uncover how we are all affected by inequalities as individuals and as a society. This class will provide you with the tools to research and analyze the issues related to “unfairness” and give you guidance in your journey as you reflect on the role you play within your community. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall – let’s make this world fairer for all.
