HNRS 2020 Sec. 064 - Fall 2022

Associate Professor Nichole Bauer Department of Political Science

Tu Th 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Political representation in the United States is at its highest level ever with the most diverse Congress currently serving. Issues of gender identity, racial identity, sexual orientation, social class, and the intersection of these identities, are increasingly relevant and visible political issues.

We will examine intersectionality broadly looking at the cross-sections of race, gender, sexuality, social class, etc. and how these identities affect individual political experiences and individual political engagement among citizens, the formation of public policies, and how citizens choose representatives in elected office.
