The idea of race in the United States has a long and complex history. While the United States was founded on principles of freedom and equality, ideas about race were used to justify slavery, segregation, and to legalize inequality. Many point to the civil rights movement in the 1960's as a major turning point in beginning to resolve this contradiction. But to what extent does race continue to shape our social, political, and economic system, our interpersonal relationships, and our personal experiences? Twenty Two Ways to Think about Race is a course designed for the LSA Race Theme Semester. The objective of the course is to introduce students to a variety of ways to approach the study of race by inviting speakers from different disciplines, for example, anthropology, biology, communication studies, public policy, history, economics, sociology, psychology, ethnic studies, etc. The course is multidisciplinary and will expose students to the distinct ways that different disciplines ask questions, think about problems, and pursue answers and solutions.

Course Requirements:

Attendance is required. Other course requirements include weekly discussion questions and blog posts.

Intended Audience:

First or second year students
