Methodologies in Critical Race Studies
AMST 207
Spring 2012 not offered

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: Intercultural Literacy, Writing
Students produce a full research proposal with a literature and annotated bibliography for the final project. They also are required to write 6 response papers that critically engage the course readings, where they have to identity the author's central argument and methodology.
