Expanded Course Description
This course is a general introduction to the sociology of race and ethnicity in the U.S. context. Over a century ago, American sociologist W.E.B. DuBois wrote that "the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line," and in the present, race remains a fundamental feature of social life and social organization. “Race” refers to the way societies have historically, as now, divided and categorized people according to perceived physical differences and assigned meanings (of intelligence, worth, morality, etc.) to those categories. Ultimately we care about the concepts of race and ethnicity because of their deployment in struggles over power and resources. This course will explore significant theoretical approaches to the sociological study of race and ethnicity, while also providing a sense of the variety of racial and ethnic experiences within the United States.
