Tue, 2013-08-27 01:57 pm

In her introductory elective, Race in the 21st Century: Color, Culture, National Identities, Katya Gibel Mevorach’s students examine ideas about race and how racial meanings are produced, transformed, and circulated within the US and abroad.

Students are exploring critical race theory and cultural anthropology. They are considering the historical contexts which inform thinking about difference and racial classifications as well as the cultural dynamics which racialize debates over topics including immigration, affirmative action, and biomedical research.
