Description: An exploration of the question of difference from genetics to sociology, both in the natural world and in the social world. We investigate closely what is constituted in the category of “difference” and what the implications of such categorization might be. We ultimately want to explore what such understanding means for human communities. More than a dozen experts from the Allegheny faculty address the question from their particular disciplinary perspective through a series of guest lectures. May be taken for two or four semester credit hours. Prerequisite: permission of instructor.
