Section Title: Race/Ethnicity Across Americas
Race and Ethnicity across the Americas (3) This course is an introduction to the politics of race and ethnicity across the Americas in comparative and historical perspective. The course is about how racial thought differently took hold across the region, how race and ethnicity came to differentially structure access to rights, resources, and recognition in various sociohistorical contexts, and how ethnic and racial movements have contested exclusion nationally and internationally. The course encourages students to think critically and historically about the politics and workings of race and ethnicity across and beyond the Americas.
