3 credits

Prerequisite: Open to first-year students only.

This first-year seminar will provide students with a new, more diverse perspective on the history of class, ethnicity, and gender in Vermont and their place within it. Students will begin by discovering their own history in terms of class, ethnicity, and gender and then broaden their perspective to include the larger world of JSC, Lamoille County, and the state of Vermont. Guest speakers will provide students with first-hand information of how class, ethnicity and gender shape the experiences of Vermonters. This is a first-year seminar course and meets the First-Year Seminar requirement of the GECC.
