【授業の概要と目的(何を学ぶか) / Outline and objectives】
This class builds on what students have learned in Race, Class and Gender I to look at how inequalities are inter-connected through examining various global issues. Students will learn to analyze how race, class, gender, and sexuality are connected to each other as intersecting inequalities in a society and the world, and on that basis, consider the possibility of an equal but diverse world.

【到達目標 / Goal】
A major goal is to develop students' sensitivity towards issues of inequality and skills in social analysis and critical thinking. By exploring social issues in an international and global context, students will learn to see how any global issue is multidimensional, and specifically, how inequalities are complex and constituted by the interconnection of race, class, gender, sexuality, and other bases of inequality.
