This course provides advanced study in the sociology of race/ethnicity by exploring the “big picture” of current developments in the field. The course invites students to explore both sociological theories about race/ethnicity in the United States and major areas of empirical research: (1) stratification, (2) attitudes, (3) identities and interactions, (4) assimilation, and (5) boundaries. We begin by reviewing and updating classic sociological theories of racial oppression and resistance before examining the post-civil rights era through instructor-led and student-led seminars on contemporary research in the major areas. This course is approved to satisfy American Cultures multicultural category.

Expanded Course Description
This course analyzes Latin American-origin populations in the U.S. Latinos are one of the fastest growing populations in the U.S. (now at 16% of the national population), a significant minority population that is a numerical majority in some cities. We will discuss various ethnic groups, including Mexicans, Cubans, and Puerto Ricans. A sizeable portion of the course will be devoted to the issue of the Mexican-origin population because the size of present-day Mexican immigrant population is unparalleled. The course pays particular attention to the diversity within the Latino population. We focus on two questions throughout the course: a) Are there common experiences or characteristics that justify the categorization of these varied groups under a single race/ethnicity? And b) What racial, class, and gender divisions exist within these groups? Emphasizing the interconnections among social processes that affect these groups, we address how categories such as national origin, race/ethnicity, class, gender, age, sexuality, and immigration status shape the lives of Latinos/as.
