SOCY-351 Race, Racialization and Power (3)

This course explores divergent categories of individuals who are viewed as a race or are racialized along ethnic, national, and religious hierarchies, as well as implications of how racial and racialized dynamics structure lived experience. Processes of racial formation and racialization are examined through an intersectional lens in order to engage with conflict, prejudice, and discrimination at various levels and in conjunction with other axes of power. Through readings written almost exclusively by scholars of color, engaged discussion, written assignments, and publicly-disseminated projects, students explore the ways in which the social construction of race--intersectionally in combination with social class, gender, sexuality, (dis)ability, and other aspects of identity--facilitates structural oppression and shapes individual experiences in society.
