Human Diversity (LUC), 2015-2016

Globalization makes us all aware of how closely we are connected to the actions of people who are far distant from us. Human migration, social media, and economic liberalization simultaneously reshape local environments, bringing the seemingly ‘distant’ into close proximity.

Given these developments, how can individuals and communities devise ways to share resources and negotiate conflicts without succumbing to fear, xenophobia, racism, or violence? How can we understand the roots and grapple with the consequences of a wide variety of human differences – be they defined by race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, income, ability, language, religion, nationality, or any number of other factors? These are the big questions you will take on in the Human Diversity major.
