Course Goals:

  1. To establish a learning community with an atmosphere of engagement and critical thinking.
  2. To develop a critical vocabulary for analyzing power and racial formation, including gaining competence in the concepts and theories within course readings.
  3. To gain an understanding of ‘race’ as a historical and changing construction of difference fundamentally tethered to gender, class, sexuality, and nation.
  4. To further develop critical reading, writing and speaking skills, as well as the ability to bring concepts, theoretical trajectories and categories of difference into conversation with one another.
