Education, Race and Place

Spring 2018

Taught By: Ujju Aggarwal

Section: A

CRN: 6467

Credits: 3

In this course, we will examine the role of education in producing racialized difference; and, relatedly, how education has been a means, method, and site through which various communities have fought over rights, resources, and their futures in a place. We will consider how these strategies and struggles are specific to time and place, while also working to understand the threads that connect them, and what they might teach us about questions related to: the role of the state; rights; political economy; the significance of political subjectivities of race, class, and gender to struggles for social transformation. We will cover topics including segregation and de-segregation, gentrification and struggles over urban space, privatization, achievement gaps, and school-to-prison nexus/pipelines. Students will have the opportunity to explore themes and topics covered in class through primary and secondary research that may include archives, interviews, and New York City-based field sites. This course counts toward the Ethnicities and Race minor.
