Ethnic Identity and Conflict in Croatia and Bosnia. Though Croatia itself has emerged from the 90s ex-Yugoslavia conflict as a budding new tourist destination, many faultlines from the wars are still clearly visible, moreso in Bosnia, as are continued unemployment, PTSD and trauma, and distrust of the government. By visiting specific places on-site, meeting local guest speakers, and participating in local culture, students will have a better understanding of regional psychology and possible methods to repair ethnic tensions. This class will explore ethnic identity and conflict in former Yugoslavia. Our travel route will allow students to explore cultural traditions, knowledge, and psychology, and develop an understanding of ethical travel, personal responsibility, and cultural competence abroad.
Race, Identity, Social Change, and Empowerment
Examines racism, racial identity, and theories of social change and racial empowerment primarily within the U.S. context. Highlights different ways in which racism and racial privilege have been experienced by different racial communities, more specifically at the micro-, meso-, and macro-levels. Offers students an opportunity to learn ways to promote racial empowerment and equity. Using theory from primarily psychology and sociology, the course investigates the impact of social systems and institutions on individual-level and group experiences of racism. Investigates students’ own racial identities, a deeper understanding of institutional inequalities and intersectionality, and practical skills in leadership and community building that can promote positive social change and racial equality.
