Primary Instructor:

Between autobiography, theoretical engagement, audio-visual representations and ethnographic accounts, this course will examine the meanings and modes of displacement by looking at racial formations in a global context. We will look at both the shifts of meanings and the everyday borrowings of “racial” categories, while examining discourses of difference and exclusion. What are the limits and possibilities of these discourses? What are the relationships between “race” and belonging? How does the politicization of racialized categories differ as one changes context, from post-socialism to post-colonialism to ethno-nationalism?
