HIST 7313 Graduate Colloquium: Race, Culture and Power (Spring: 3 )
This course examines a wide variety of literature on race, culture, and identity. It will introduce students to major theories of race and provide an overview of the historiography of race through a selection of case studies from across the world. In particular, we will aim to make sense of how the category of race operates in relation to broader configurations of power within such social, political, and economic formations as empires, nations, and capitalism during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In doing so, we will pay close attention to intersecting forms of identity, such as gender, class, and religion.
