Ethnic Studies

 The Ethnic Studies Program examines the social, cultural, and the historical forces that have shaped cultural identity in the united states and around the globe. In order to Recognize the complex aspects of ethnic identity, our program focuses on five themes: 1) diaspora, 2) colonialism, 3) slavery, 4) genocide, and 5) community formation. We explore these and related topics from a variety of perspectives, always conscious of how they intersect with gender, sexuality, class, and nation.
