Section Information for Fall 2024

This course introduces graduate students to the sociological study of race and ethnicity. This survey includes both theories of and empirical explorations of subjects related to the study of race and ethnicity, including the origins, the State, slavery, colonialism, political economy, racialization, migration, power, assimilation, intersectionality, and more. In this course, we will encounter how sociologists and other social scientists have traditionally approached the study of race and ethnicity and how contemporary scholars are intervening in this field. This course is open to all graduate students; however, it provides a conceptual and theoretical foundation for students who are thinking of conducting research in this field.
