Free course on role of race, class, faith and gender in upcoming election

The Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity is offering a special one-time course on the upcoming presidential election.

Presidential Politics: Race, Class, Faith & Gender in the 2008 Election kicks off with the first of five class meetings on Oct. 6. Each two-hour class will begin at 7 p.m. at the Science and Engineering Quad Teaching Center, Room 200.

The classes will offer a different panel of speakers from Stanford and other universities on Mondays in October and on Nov. 10.

The classes are free and open to the public. No registration is required except for students who want to take the course for credit.

The center has offered similar open classes that examined immigration issues and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
