Being Mixed

Fall 2014 quarter

Taught by

We will focus on complexities facing mixed-raced individuals as they strive for clear identity in a culture characterized by binaries which push individuals towards identifying with only one race.  We will explore racial identity development models, documents such as the  Bill of Rights for Racially Mixed People , and anthologies of personal stories such as Half and Half and Mixed: Multiracial College Students Tell Their Life Stories .  The class will be seminar-based. There will be short reflection papers associated with readings and class discussion.
