Social Identity and Intergroup Communication

Our identification with social groups, such as our racial/ethnic group, religious affiliation, or social class, is central to our self-concept. We have to talk and relate across these social group differences on a daily basis. The purpose of this course is to help you cultivate an awareness of your own social identities as well as how social identity influences communication across difference, such as race, ethnicity, religion, age, or social class. To that end, you will learn about social identity and intergroup communication theorizing, language and bias, intergroup contact, and intergroup dialogue. Fall semester.
