Description
This course will explore constitutional issues surrounding claims of race and sex discrimination.  The course is historical, covering antebellum, Civil War, and post-Fourteenth Amendment controversies.  We will examine race and sex in several contexts (e.g., segregation, military policy, education, affirmative action) and consider a broad range of theoretical approaches.  The course is designed to provide a close understanding of both historical and contemporary analyses.  The materials on race occupy approximately two-thirds of the overall course.

Prerequisite:  Con Law I.
