“Race” has been a fixture in the U.S. imagination throughout the nation’s history, but to what are we referring when we use the term? How stable is the concept anyway? In what ways are U.S. understandings of “race” unique to this country? None of these questions can be addressed without considering the other markers of identity (ethnicity, class, sexuality, etc.) which give meaning to the notion of “race” in the first place. Class materials will be drawn from British, American, and African-American literature, history, feminist and gender studies, media studies, and cultural anthropology. Requirements include a weekly reading journal, a take-home midterm, and a final research paper.
