Name

Ethnic and Racial Marginalization in North-American Cities

Description

This course provides a comparative analysis of homelessness and urban marginalization through the lenses of racial and cultural inequality. It addresses issues such as homelessness, ghettos, mental health and access to resources. Students learn how racial inequality creates a narrative of marginalization within urban centers. The comparative nature of the course allows students to see how contemporary trends in urbanization are North American wide. Students develop the tools to analyze and identify the issues facing North American urban centers by focusing on systemic marginalization, key factors in the history of suppression, mental health and general health concerns, health care policy, the welfare system (i.e. social housing), policing (criminal intent and activity), and substance abuse. The course provides students an embedded service component that allows them to familiarize with organizations who are addressing the issues studied at the ground level and to learn about the challenges and positive changes are being made from hands on experience.
