Theorizing Social Difference

Units: 1.5

How do we come to know who we are and how is this knowledge raced, embodied, engendered and embedded in a material context? These questions underpin social work knowledge and practice. Developing an analysis of social difference is a crucial skill for social workers. In this course students will be introduced to the concepts of marginalization and dominance as they play out in (primarily) North American contexts. The course will look at social work theories and knowledge as a departure point from which to explore interdisciplinary theorizations of concepts core to the profession.

Graduate course in the Social Work program offered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
