ANTH 5528 - Topics in Race Theory


This course examines theories and practices of race and otherness, in order to analyze and interpret constructions, deconstructions and reconstructions of race from the late 18th to the 21st centuries. The focus varies from year to year, and may include ‘race, ‘progress and the West,’ ‘gender, race and power,’ and ‘white supremacy.’ The consistent theme is that race is neither a biological nor a cultural category, but a method and theory of social organization, an alibi for inequality, and a strategy for resistance.
Cross listed as AAS 5528.
Prerequisite: ANTH 1010, 3010, or other introductory or middle-level social science or humanities course
