CORE: Making and Unmaking Stereotypes with Monica Patterson
Most of us "know" that stereotypes are "bad," in that they serve as a source of misunderstanding and alienation between people, and we shouldn't be caught making use of them. But what alternatives do we have when personally encountering unfamiliar individuals, cultural conditions, and situations? In this seminar, we will attempt to outline for ourselves the often blurry distinctions between cultural stereotypes and generalizations, as well as launching investigations into means of working with and against both.
