222 Critical Race Theory Seminar (3)

Discussion - 3 hours. This course will examine race relations and racial discrimination in America through the perspectives of proponents of the Critical Race Theory movement ("CRT"), a collection of legal scholars who challenge both conservative and liberal political orthodoxies. CRT is part of an evolving tradition that originated with Critical Legal Studies ("CLS"), a movement of radical academics that sprang up in the 1970s. Topics covered will include anti-discrimination law, affirmative action, immigration, the criminal justice system, identity politics, the intersection of race, gender and class, post-modern conceptions of race, among others.  Students must attend the Aoki Center Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series on Tuesdays from 12:00-1:00 PM, Room TBA.
