POLI 2302 Dilemmas of Unity and Diversity in American Politics and Society (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

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.
