Shifting and contested meanings of "race" from the "Age of Conquest" to the present. Starting from the proposition that race is not a fixed or stable category of social thought or being, the seminar seeks to ascertain how and why Western ideas about race have changed.
Class Description:
Race - has little reality in the biological sense, yet its power to influence our lives and our self-understanding is enormous. This course explores the shifting and contested meanings of race, from the European 'Age of Conquest' onward. The course also contains a significant sociological analysis of the 'racial' notion. Starting from the proposition that race is not a stable or fixed category of social thought and being, our primary task will be to ascertain how Western ideas and sociological practice about race have changed, and why these changes have occurred. We will explore the large social processes and discourses developing and shaping the concept of race, particularly how various groups, e.g., native peoples of the Americas, Africans, and Europeans became racialized via enslavement, trade, colonialism and capitalism. We will explore, as well, the various justifications (religious, legal, philosophical, 'scientific') for notions of racial inferiority and racial superiority. While we will spend some time analyzing how what it means to be 'white' has been historically contingent on being non-Black or Indian, we will also explore the subjectivities of racialized and oppressed peoples, especially their critiques of racism and domination. Some time will be spent on discussing the structural transformation of racism.
