SOC-S 335 Race and Ethnic Relations

Professor: Hyeyoung Kwon
Credits: 3

In a society where many people claim that race no longer matters, how can we understand persistent racial inequality? To address this question, this course explores: (1) how racial categories are invented in the U.S.; (2) how structural factors—such as polices, labor market, housing, school, and the prison system— reproduce racial inequality; (3) how cultural representations and everyday interactions recreate racial hierarchies; and (4) how race intersects with other systems of inequality to shape our identity, family dynamics, and gender relations.

This class meets 2:30pm-3:45pm on Mondays and Wednesdays in Wylie Hall 015.
