This course will allow students to explore the cultural and social history underpinning the deep racial divisions in Milwaukee and the impact these have had on both white and non-white community identities.  Assignments will include common readings on white flight, the social construction of poverty and the systemic effects of geographical segregation.  Students will maintain a reflective journal and share their cross-cultural experiences and observations as the semester progresses.  Upon completion of their experience, students will submit a final journal and reflection paper/presentation regarding how the immersion impacted their perceptions of distressed minority populations.
