INTRODUCTION TO RACE AND ETHNIC STUDIES
As the gateway and methods course for all the minors in the Race and Ethnic Studies Program, this interdisciplinary course provides an introduction to race theory frameworks from multiple disciplines (critical race theory, racial identity development, third space and cultural hybridity) and applies them to the dynamic and overlapping histories, cultures and literatures of historically underrepresented groups in the U.S.
POLITICS OF URBAN INEQUALITY IN THE U.S.
The course offers a sophisticated depiction of systemic urban inequality that constrains the lives of the urban poor. The readings will feature academic books and research articles that describe and analyze the politics and life experiences in inner-city neighborhoods.
