  Privilege and Oppression  
(Administration)

This workshop provides a detailed sociological overview of the process and resulting structure by which people become differentiated from one another and arranged in graded strata with varying degrees of privilege (social, psychological, economic, etc.). Participants will learn about structural inequality and will be introduced to various understandings of prejudice and discrimination. Participants will also be encouraged to think about privilege and oppression as institutional, systemic, and global issues. The workshop will conclude with a discussion about how to begin fighting racial, gender, and class oppressions in a society that gives privileges to certain groups over others.
