Gender 19-1: “Student Debt and Contemporary University”

Course explores relationship between debt, race and gender
University Business, October 2014

Fall 2014 freshman seminar at University of California, Los Angeles, taught by Grace Hong, an associate professor of gender studies and Asian-American studies

“While universities are often lauded as avenues for upward mobility and alleviation of class, race, gender and sexual inequality, recent debates about uneven burdens of student debt have put such assumption into question. What is the relationship between education debt and gendered, racialized and classed stratification? Is education debt the next economic bubble, and if so what will happen when it pops? What is the role of university in society and how does education debt influence this role? What are some alternative ways of imagining the role of the university and our relationships to education debt?”
