Description

This course examines the central tensions underlying race and ethnic relations. Our focus is primarily on intergroup relations in America, though we will devote some attention to ethnic conflict beyond the borders of the United States. Our goal is to develop an appreciation for the social forces that facilitate or impede intergroup relations. We will devote attention to:

  1. theoretical debates in the conceptualization and analysis of race and ethnicity
  2. developing an historical understanding of the social and political forces that have shaped racial and ethnic relations
  3. understanding how various racial and ethnic groups construct and use their social identity
