IDLS 3050 - Deconstructing Hate: An Interdisciplinary Examination of Hate in the US and Abroad

5 credit hours
This course explores the construct of hate from historical, psychological, sociological, organizational, and criminal justice perspectives. It inquires into the human capacity to define, and then dehumanize another and the processes that involve curtailing, controlling, or combating that capacity. In being exposed to the nature of hate in the US and abroad, students will: examine hate as a cultural practice; explore its communicative and social cognitive foundations; examine hate from a legal and social scientific perspective; explore hate crimes and hate speech; and examine politics and psychology of prejudice, discrimination and hate.
