Critical Race Theory & the Law

Students considering majors in history, political science, pre-law, or the humanities will need to hone their critical thinking and analytical skills while simultaneously developing a broad understanding of the complexities of the American government, history, and society. Designed for pre-college students, this course examines the deeply rooted interconnectedness between race and the law. Students will study the origins of Critical Race Theory (CRT), its major themes, such as liberalism, counter-storytelling, and intersectionality, and critiques of CRT, with a particular focus on political, legal, scholarly, and popular discourses. (Summer only 2022-23).
