Social and Cultural Analysis (SCA) is trans-disciplinary in nature. It combines topics and methods drawn from the humanities and social science to analyze the relationships among individuals, groups, institutions, governments, economies, and environments. Our courses draw on theoretical insights from social geography, feminism and queer studies, ethnic studies, critical race theory, labor studies, and cultural studies. Our programs of study value both historical inquiry and engagement with the present, especially regarding large-scale developments like urbanization, commodification, movement of peoples, transnational exchange, identity formations, and, ethnic and diasporic cultures.
