Course Number:

Institution: 
Mount Holyoke College
The course will examine marginal and "alien" citizenship statuses in the United States. Whereas the Declaration of Independence asserts that "all men are created equal," we will interrogate that statement by studying identities and personages that are explicitly treated unequally in the law and society. From immigrants to gang members, from tipped workers to queer persons, from presumed terrorists to disenfranchised ex-cons, we will examine the deliberate incorporation and maintenance of people in society into lower classes and statuses.
Variable Credit Comments: 
This class will be jointly taught with students from Holyoke Community College (HCC). Please reserve one hour before and after class time for travel to and from HCC for part of the semester. MHC will provide transportation.
