Race, Religion, and Donald J. Trump Syllabus

Course Description & Student Outcomes: The purpose of this course is to gain appreciation for sociological analysis at the intersection of race-ethnicity and religion through the phenomenon of Donald J. Trump’s election as the 45th president of the United States.  Let me be clear: the course is not an opportunity for the professor and students to air their opinions, and we will not be focused on Trump’s personality. Instead, the class constitutes a careful exploration centering on racial and religious dynamics as they touch on the historical context of the Trump presidency—including our discernment of significance in his positions, policies, political appointments, and particular public statements (and those of his surrogates/supporters/representatives).  The course is analytical, historical, and empirically grounded in observable patterns. <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: medium; font-family: ‘Times New Roman’,0
