Courses: Fixing Identity:-Growing Up Ethnic (ENGLB224001)

Spring 2010

Class Number: 2375
III HU
New Course: Acquiring self-knowledge is one of the marks of a
transition to adulthood. It requires gaining understanding of oneself
through a complicated coalescence of talent, heritage and opportunity.
We study narratives that view young adult development through the
frame of ethnicity. One may want to “fix” one’s identity by repairing
the differences; or to “fix” it by keeping some stability in a
bewildering world. Ethnicity and its matrix of interactions is a
force that forms personality.
