Intro: Critical Race/Ethnicity

Taught By: Wilson Valentin
Section: A

CRN: 11141

Credits: 3

Through an interdisciplinary engagement with contemporary literature and scholarship on race and ethnicity, this course considers the following questions: How do race and ethnicity organize the social world? What are the historical conditions under which the various definitions of racial and ethnic difference emerge? What is at stake in the institutional recognition of race and ethnicity, particularly as these categories come to be defined in relation to other nodes of difference such as gender and class? How do individuals utilize labels of racial and ethnic difference to develop an understanding of the self in relation to the social and political worlds they inhabit? As an introductory course to the curricular area in Race and Ethnicity Studies, the class provides an overview of different areas within this complex field, including Latino Studies, African-American Studies, Asian-American Studies, and Whiteness Studies.
