This seminar will draw on theories, models, and analytical techniques and data derived from at least three of the traditional four subfields of anthropology to critically examine current approaches to the study of rac. Students will analyze the definition of race and consider the implications of conceptualizing it as a social instead of biological phenomena. Students will aslo explore the ways that race changes of develops new meanings over time and space through case studies that highlight examples of political, economic, judicial, health and cultural inequalities. The course will conclude with a consideration of personal and collective strategies for combating racism.
