It centers on how race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and cultural diversity are examined and discussed in the academic field of American multicultural studies. It seeks to bring together foundational works of scholars writing within the framework of a fairly new and exciting area of study that develops across disciplines, rather than representing a discipline in itself.
Each section of the book will tackle one specific theme. The themes are race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and cultural diversity. The intention of the essays within each theme is to provide students, professors, and public readers with analytical tools that are necessary to conceptualize these issues within the broader framework of American multicultural studies. This anthology will consist of five main sections. Each section covers the broad topics of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and cultural diversity as themes in American multicultural studies. Each section will comprise of 5-7 essays written by scholars from various research backgrounds including women studies, political science, sociology, literature, cultural studies, communication studies, anthropology, and philosophy.
I had two distinct classes that are being combined into one.
Just too harsh for Oklahoma.
While this book is a good one, the cost of requiring it along with another textbook was too cost-prohibitive for my students.
Used other text.
Still under review
