Crosslisting: AMST 307, AFAM 303

This course will trace the history of the ideology of race from its emergence in the 15th century to its manifestation in our contemporary society. Beginning with the expansion of the Portuguese into Africa and the Spanish into the Americas, the course will demonstrate that our present discourse of race has its origins in the historic moment of European expansion. It will emphasize that rather than being a secondary issue, the discourse of race has remained central to the structuring of societies throughout the Americas.
