American-Arab and French Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Sex, Religion and Immigration
Each class is an opportunity to learn through thought-provoking presentations, readings and group discussions focusing on identity and justice:
- Are universal rights and justice being advanced or threatened by the current explosion of identities—sexual, religious and nationalistic?
- Is the proliferation of multicultural identities liberating or leading to tribalism and a “clash of civilization?”
- How do we arbitrate between competing rights and identities, such as religious freedom, free speech and civic equality?
