PSYC 438 - CAPSTONE SEMINAR: SOCIAL JUSTICE AND PSYCHOLOGY
This course concerns the relationship between psychological science and social justice. We will examine this relationship through the lens of intersectionality, which examines the interrelation between systems of inequality, such as sexism, racism, classism, and heterosexism. Intersectionality calls for a social justice approach, whereby scholars engage in sustained efforts to work towards equality for all people in terms of rights, access to resources, and well-being. We will explore the application of intersectionality to psychological theory and methods, and discuss controversies over the role that psychology should play in social justice advocacy. We will examine psychological research that takes a social justice approach to topics such as education, mental health, and public policy. Finally, we will reflect on, and have the opportunity to participate in, social justice efforts as they relate to psychology.
