Methodologies in Critical Race Studies
AMST 207
Fall 2008
Section: 01  

This seminar is geared toward exploring a wide variety of approaches to the study of critical race studies. We will examine research methodologies within this field by attending to a selection of recuperated histories within a range of different geographical sites and regions, communities, and political terrains through focus on racial formations theory and critical race theory. We will examine the importance of race as a category of analysis, especially in relation to class, gender, sexuality, and citizenship. Readings will include historical, anthropological, and sociological works, as well as comparative and interdisciplinary scholarship that tends to the ways that histories of colonization and sovereignty, enslavement, immigration, imperialism, and citizenship all shape race in the United States.

Essential Capabilities: Speaking, Writing
This seminar anticipates that all students will formulate and present a 10-12 page research proposal that outlines a thesis-length project. In addition, students must prepare reading response papers and present them to the class.
