> *ANTH 216 S/M/ Race, Racism and the Black Experience in the Americas
> Course Description:*
> This course examines race, racism and the black experience in the Americas
> from an anthropological perspective. Comparing and contrasting the lived
> experiences of contemporary members of the African diaspora, it will
> examine issues such as: the scientific and social construction of race;
> racism and social and health inequality; whiteness and privilege; blackness
> as an individual and social identity; and the intersection of race, gender,
> and class. The course also examines the relationship between identity and
> the production of cultural products such as music, dance, and religion
> across the Americas. Lastly, the course explores social justice movements
> and acts of resistance against discrimination and pervasive inequality.
> Readings, films, written assignments, and discussions will underscore how
> the politics of race and ethnicity as well as the discourse on culture and
> identity, shape and influence social relations and individual experiences
> throughout the Americas.
