Course Details

‘Privilege’ is a word which has taken on new depths of meaning in recent years. Black Lives Matter and other movements ask us to think carefully about what we are given without having earned it. What unfair advantages or privileges does society grant some people for having white skin and/or an able body, or for being straight and/or wealthy? In this course, we will look at what privilege is and how it is complicated. We will consider race, disability, sexuality, and class specifically, and other issues in general, to uncover how our experiences of the world are shaped by social structures which give or take away privilege.

This course comprises of:

  • Recorded video and audio materials
  • Written and visual materials
