SOC 321K • Race, Culture and Migration
11:00 AM-12:30 PM
We will review theoretical developments in the sociological study of 'race', examine processes of racialization, and cultural texts to better understand the ways in which identities are socially produced. Throughout, attention will be placed on forms of popular culture, black cultural production and political action to question how such practices are shaped by migrations within the African diaspora. Students will be challenged to apply theories of race and racism to historical and contemporary contexts both inside and outside of the USA.
