INTERGROUP RELATIONS ENROLLMENT FORM IG 201: Inter- and Intra-Group Race Dialogues Spring 2014
In a multicultural society, discussions about issues of conflict and community are needed to facilitate understanding between social/cultural groups. In these inter- (People of Color and White People) and intra- (White Racial Identity or Multiracial Identity) group dialogues on race, students will participate in semi-structured face-to-face meetings across and/or within social identity groups. They will discuss relevant historical, psychological, and sociological reading material and explore group experiences in various social and institutional contexts. Through interactive activities, in-class dialogues, readings, and self-reflective writing, students will learn about pertinent issues facing the participating groups on campus and in society. The goal is to create a setting in which students engage in open and constructive dialogue by exploring issues of inter-/intra-group relations, conflict, and social change.
Dialogue sessions will take place from on Mondays from 7:00-8:50 PM. Two advanced peer-facilitators from IG 361: Racial Identity Theory & Praxis will facilitate your dialogue, with ongoing supervision from faculty/staff instructors.
Acceptance to this course will be conducted on an ongoing basis until spaces are filled. Please complete the following application as soon as possible to be considered for enrollment. We will be in touch before registration begins on November 12 about the status of your application. Questions can be directed to Professor Kristie Ford (firstname.lastname@example.org).
