Critical Race Scholarship: Theories and Pedagogies

In this interdisciplinary course, graduate students will engage with critical race scholarship to build from and integrate this scholarship into their own research and pedagogy. Readings will span an expansive array of critical race theories and methods. Scholarly traditions will include transnational and diasporic feminisms; Black geographies and Caribbean philosophies; indigenous studies and critical ethnic studies; critical whiteness studies; disability studies; activist scholarship; and literature addressing pedagogical approaches in these areas. Students will use course readings to craft a writing project useful in their research and/or teaching.
