The Junior Colloquium is designed to teach students to think critically and analytically about race as a belief system that plays a foundational role in the Western world view. The seminar is intended to familiarize majors with classic works in the field of African American studies while also introducing them to key theoretical debates about race, culture, and society. Topics covered include the historical development of the idea of race, the intersections between race and other facets of identity such as gender and class, and the different ways in which race has been conceptualized.
