Race and Place


In this course, students will investigate the claim that race and place are mutually constitutive; that is, race shapes how people perceive and organize places, and places in turn shape understandings and experiences of race. This investigation will span time - form the beginning of colonization in North America to the present - and space - from rural communities to central cities. Students will use a primarily sociological lens, but will also draw insights from history, political science, demography, and philosophy. Topics of study include segregation, housing, the criminal legal system, schooling, work, and more. This seminar is an upper-level course intended for advanced sociology majors and minors, as well as graduate students.
