Original Format

A multi-disciplinary course that explores race and ethnicity in Philadelphia. Its history, politics, economics, literature, geography, sociology, religious diversity, and so on.

How the course will function. Since the student participants will come from a variety of disciplines, they can be expected to bring some knowledge of the methodologies and resources of those disciplines—or at least some idea about who seek out to help them. The students will act as a team, working together to find the relevant “texts” and figure out how to use them, extracting the information they deem important. In effect, they will create the syllabus for the course as the course develops. With light-handed guidance from the instructor.
