Junior Colloquium: Methodologies in Ethnic Studies
AMST 207
Fall 2007 not offered

This seminar is geared toward exploring a wide variety of approaches to ethnic studies--the study of race in the United States. We will examine 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. We will focus on race as the central category of analysis, with class, gender, and sexuality as interconnected axes of difference. We will study different research approaches and methods by turning to particular studies of colonization and sovereignty, citizenship, immigration, political activism and resistance, enfranchisement and civil rights, religion, diaspora, cultural production, and self-determination. Readings will include historical, sociological, and anthropological works, as well as comparative and interdisciplinary scholarship.
