Critical Race & Political Econ 261 - Race, Racism, and Power

Race, Racism, and Power

Vanessa Rosa

TTH 10:30AM-11:45AM

Mount Holyoke College
Shattuck Hall 217
This course analyzes the concepts of race and racism from an interdisciplinary perspective, with focus on Latinas/os/x in the United States. It explores the sociocultural, political, economic, and historical forces that interact with each other in the production of racial categories. We will focus on structural, systemic, and institutional racism and processes of racialization. The course examines racial inequality from a historical perspective and investigates how racial categories evolve and form across contexts. The analysis that develops will ultimately allow us to think rigorously about social inequality, transformation, and liberation.
