EDL 401 Cultural Studies and the Complexity of Empowerment (3) MPC

Through field experience and related readings in the field of cultural studies, students consider political and ethical considerations involved in helping relationships. Community service is a central component. Journals, class discussions, and readings integrate experience with theoretical understandings of power as it relates to race, class, gender, and other social categories. Students design, create, and present a project focusing on a particular problem that relates to issues encountered in the field placement and readings.

Prerequisite: EDL 282 or permission of instructor.
