POLI 2302 Dilemmas of Unity and Diversity in American Politics and Society (Fall: 3 )
Both politicians and professors speak of diversity as an unqualified good that Americans must continually strive to achieve. Yet what exactly do we mean by "diversity"? Along what dimensions - racial, social class, cultural, phenotypical, religious, ideological - do we define diversity? More to the point, are there any limits such that the merits of diversity (or presumed merits) diminish once certain levels of diversity are achieved.
