Race, Culture, Classification
Fall 2023
Taught By: Lawrence Hirschfeld
Section: A

CRN: 15775

Credits: 3

Few ideas are as potent, as easy to learn, and as difficult to forget as race. This course explores issues about race by disrupting "common sense" and by identifying its psychological and cultural dimensions. The approach is comparative: to examine differences and similarities in racial thinking across cultures and across historical periods, and to compare race with other important social categories, such as gender and class.
