Theorizing Racism

AFRI 0800 S01 [CRN: 26545]

Since the eruption of Black Lives Matter protest across the United States in response to the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, the acknowledgement and denunciation of systemic racism in mainstream discourse has significantly increased. As more and more people agree that racism is a contemporary problem, an old question emerges: What do people mean when they say “racism”? This lecture course situates mainstream discourse about racism within racism’s contentious conceptual history, critically engages a dynamic interdisciplinary debate about the meaning of racism, and imagines what a it would take to achieve a world without racism.
