ANTHROPOLOGY

ANTH-210 Race and Racism FA3 (3)

Course Level: Undergraduate

Race and Racism FA3 (3) Drawing from biological anthropology, this course traces the development of the race concept, beginning with the emergence of "pre-racial" categories. It then examines the biological and social construction of race, how race has been mutually constructed with sexism, heterosexism, classism, and other essentialist forms of oppression. Modes of resistance are examined simultaneously. Usually Offered: fall and spring.
