Race, Protest and Culture

In this focal study students will examine race from an interdisciplinary perspective. Incorporating historical, anthropological and sociological approaches, they will investigate the construction of race as an identity, the history of racial oppression and the use of culture to oppress or advance equality and civil rights. Sources will range from scholarly works to films and television shows, statistical information and music.
