The roots of racism and sexism and the issues they raise. The cultural, biological, and social contexts of race and gender and examination of biological variation, genetic determinism, human adaptation, and the bases of human behavior. (Gen Ed SB, DU)

More updated description for this course: The United States is a culture marked by social inequality- racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia are interwoven throughout our everyday lives. This class explores the historical roots of these phenomena, the ways in which they are imprinted on the human body, in our interactions and institutions, and what people are doing to respond to them.
