CSIJ 200. Race and Racism in America. 3 Hours.

Semester course; 2 lecture and 1 recitation hours. 3 credits. Interrogates four key areas of inquiry: origins, ideology, maintenance and resistance to race and racism in the U.S., and applies an intersectional lens to examine how race interlocks with other systems of power. Reflecting the diverse faculty and students who co-created it, this course will draw from a variety of scholarly disciplines spanning the humanities and the social, natural and applied sciences to explore these issues and to help students understand how racism operates in the U.S. Lecture will be delivered asynchronously online and students will attend one weekly 50-minute recitation section.
