This course examines race as a set of ideas that rely upon understandings of religion, culture, labor, status, biology, and politics, that has both rationalized profound inequality and galvanized movements for social justice. Scholars have charted the connections between race and slavery and its abolition, colonialism and the emergence of democratic states, imperialism, social welfare policy, and movements for civil and human rights. This course is a far-ranging examination of the history of race with a focus on three cases: the Iberian world, the French Caribbean and North America. We will seek to understand race-making through law, culture, and custom and explain the endurance and the transformations of this broad category of human difference as it shaped the Atlantic World.
