Section Information for Fall 2023
This course will introduce students to foundational scholarship in the study of race and its conjunction with cultural studies. The course will begin with an overview of historical debates around race in cultural studies and trace their connections to broader theories of the history of racial formations and the social construction of race and ethnicity. Given this foundation, the course will move on to examine various articulations of race and their attendant theorizations, including things like abolitionism, reconstruction, the Civil Rights Movement, settler colonialism, pan africanism, afropessism, colorblind racism, and the carceral state. While the course will firmly establish theories of race and ethnicity within the United States, it will work as much as possible to include international perspectives and examine articulations of race and ethnicity that occur outside of US borders and culture.
Enrollment limited to students with a class of Advanced to Candidacy, Graduate, Junior Plus, Non-Degree or Senior Plus.
Enrollment is limited to Graduate, Non-Degree or Undergraduate level students.
Students in a Non-Degree Undergraduate degree may not enroll.
