Champlain College Justice League

Justice League Spring 2013

When and where: Monday, January 28, 2013 from 3:30 – 5 pm, Hauke Boardroom

Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality

Facilitator: Faith Yacubian, Adjunct Professor in Social Work and the Core & Jenna Roy, ’13

Description: Sociology tells us that humans are social beings and behave in compliance with or resistance to societal norms and mores. Science tells us that humans are water based, require a nervous system, and have evolved. What would you say you are? This session will look at one aspect of human existence that draws from inquires posed by the fields of philosophy and women studies. We will identify the classifications, or socially constructed labels, we inscribe on ourselves and proscribe on others and where those identities converge. We will then examine the relationship between these identities and living in an unequal society; more specifically, how the function of power-oppression marks one’s advantage or disadvantage position.

We hope you can attend, and encourage your students to attend, some or all of these events!  If you haven’t already, please also check-out and “like” our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ChamplainCollegeJusticeLeague
