Introduction to the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity

Examines those social forces, both historical and contemporary, that have brought about racial and ethnic 'diversity' and 'difference' in the U.S. Attention to the histories and experiences of Native Peoples, African Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans. Taking a comparative approach, it puts into focus the shared histories of racialization among these groups without losing sight of asymmetrical relations of power informing these histories. The course sheds light on the ways these groups position themselves and are positioned as racial subjects in distinct and historically specific ways but also in relational and mutually constitutive ways. May meet either the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures or Social Inequality requirement. Meets the Equity and Power: EPUS requirement.

Degree requirement — Equity and Power: EPUS
