This class, taught by Beth Tanner and Micah McCreary at New Brunswick Theological Seminary, is the second portion of IN 331. During the semester, students will engage in readings, videos, and class interactions around the issues of privilege in all forms of oppression. The class will focus on the ways the sciences and theology have aided each other in promoting a privileged agenda in this and many other countries. Through the class resources and personal reflection, students will gain insight into critical reflection on privilege and become equipped to see and work on dismantling it in the church and community. This is an important class that will provide the foundations for many other NBTS courses.
