Section Description

This introductory course offers an overview of the diverse institutional, cultural, and socio-historical issues relating to the past and present life circumstances of major ethnoracial minority groups in the U.S. The course critically evaluates notions of race, ethnicity, and the consequences of such social categorization for individual/collective identity and social practice. While the primary focus will be on the histories and social conditions of people of color, the course will also consider the notion of "whiteness" and the increasing diversity and changing ethnoracial boundaries produced by the growth of multiraciality and immigration. The primary aims are: i) to introduce sociological concepts and perspectives in the study of ethnic/racial minorities; ii) develop understanding of the impact of racialization on identity, human relationships, and institutional practices; iii) raise awareness and insight into the plurality of voices, cultures, and social conditions within the United States.
