ANTH-315: Race & Racism in American Culture

3 credit hours
This course analyzes recent developments in research related to race and racism that has revealed that racism is capable of remaining socially effective even when individuals themselves do not hold racist beliefs. The stumbling block that efforts to mitigate racism must now confront is a "racism without racists." By investigating this dynamic, we seek to shed new light on why race and racism have been absolutely central to the genesis, development, and modern-day form of American society, politics, and culture. This course can be used to satisfy University Studies requirements.
