*ANTH 216 S/M/ Race, Racism and the Black Experience in the Americas Course
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.
