Taught By: Daniel Rodriguez-Navas

Section: AX

CRN: 10858

Credits: 4

Our goal is twofold: to identify different ways in which members of a community can be subjugated and marginalized, and to ask ourselves what kind of ethical and strategic considerations should inform our response to instances of subjugation and discrimination if our primary concern is that our actions be at once faithful to the values that we stand for and politically efficacious. We will study works by Simone Weil, Michel Foucault, Martin Luther King Jr., Primo Levi, Simone de Beauvoir, Charles W. Mills, Lorde, and hooks, among others. We will also use films and press articles as material for case studies.
