This course examines the central tensions underlying race and ethnic relations. Our focus is primarily on intergroup relations in America, though we will devote some attention to ethnic conflict beyond the borders of the United States. For more than sixty years, sociologists have preoccupied themselves with the study of intergroup relations, assimilation, and racial and ethnic conflict. Indeed these issues have grown more complex and nuanced as the United States becomes more racially and ethnically diverse. Our goal is to develop an appreciation for the social forces that facilitate or impede intergroup relations. We will devote attention to:

  1. theoretical debates in the conceptualization and analysis of race and ethnicity
  2. developing an historical understanding of the social and political meaning of race and ethnicity
  3. understanding how various racial and ethnic groups construct and use their social identity
