This is a course on social difference and the work of the marginalized to bring about social, political, organizational and institutional change. It offers a survey on the politics of difference, noting how various axes of difference, like race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, ability and region, are imagined, and to what end those imaginings are deployed. It then turns to the work of marginalized activists and advocates to ask how we might work in concert to amplify the voice of their constituents and promote greater inclusiveness.
