SOC 220 - Sociological Perspectives on Race


Prerequisites: SOC 100 
Fulfills a course requirement in the Anthropology + Sociology Core Concentration
W.E.B. DuBois serves as the starting point for discussing race in sociological terms. The class then moves chronologically towards the 21st century, where sociologists still struggle to elucidate race as a social construction. A special focus on the progress and challenges of the post-civil rights era in the United States will be included. Topics include race theory, race stratification, race identity and representation, trends in racial attitudes, race and power, the intersection of race with class and gender, and the social construction of whiteness.
