SOC 300 The Sociology of Diversity

Canada has experienced a rapid increase in cultural, racial, ethnic and national diversity. On one hand, there is the development of expanding globalization and its attendant pressures toward social and cultural homogeneity. On the other hand, there is the reaction to these pressures manifested in the growing significance of primordial loyalties based on traditional variables. Socially and individually, the tension between globalization and communalism is potentially disruptive and fraught with conflict, competing demands and much misunderstanding. Lect: 3 hrs.
