APST 300 - Diversity in Appalachia

Credits: (3)
Instructional Method: Three hours lecture.
Debunking the myth of an all-white, homogenous Appalachia, this class will highlight the diversity of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identification, and sexual orientation in the region. Students will study various groups’ contributions to the region, including Native Americans, Affrilachians, Western and Eastern Europeans, Latinx, and others. Additionally, students will learn about different religious groups, along with social movements to bring awareness to and recognition of the LGBTQI communities. In essence, students will recognize that no singular Appalachia or Appalachian exists and instead come to appreciate the diversity that does exist.
