    This course teaches students how to conduct transdisciplinary studies of whiteness as a historical, social, cultural, and political racialized category with theoretical and material implications for identity and subjectivity formation, and micro and macro-level interactions between and among people and institutions. Students also examine the relationship between whiteness and gender, sexuality, class, nation, and other markers, especially considering the historical and contemporary origins and manifestations of, as well as resistance to, white supremacy and privilege, especially in the United States.
