HON 490 / CSJ 301
Honors , Interdisciplinary
This course offers students an opportunity to examine the culture and diversity of London -- the world’s most multicultural city. Learn how and why groups have migrated to London and how social inequalities evolved over time there. We will visit the Migration Museum, the neighborhood of Brixton to learn about marginalized Caribbean populations, Whitechapel and East London to understand poverty in the Victorian era, and Chinatown’s Gerrard Street. The excursions and course content will allow students to challenge, question, and analyze socially constructed systemic inequalities and learn how Londoners are working to break cycles of socialization to move in a direction of change.
