Expanded Course Description
This course will explore a variety of issues connected to race and racism in the United States. Students will learn foundational and contemporary racial theories pertinent to the sociology of race and develop a historical understanding of race and racism through the examination of settler colonialism, slavery, housing, and immigration policies that have shaped present-day race relations and inequality. We will discuss the enduring significance of race through specific institutions and issues such as education, the environment, whiteness, sports, food, and the criminal justice system. Toward the end of our course, we will assess various strategies and historical examples of political action and resistance aimed at addressing racial inequality and other intersecting forms of oppression.
