Topics in Social Stratification (Half-Term): Systemic Racism

SOC 560

Info tab content
"Systemic racism" highlights structural factors that perpetuate racial inequality despite personal intentions and agency. Sociologists were among the first to identify and theorize the subject. This seminar focuses on sociological contributions to the understanding of systemic racism. First we investigate legislative actions and economic factors perpetuating structural barriers. We then examine migration, immigration, urban development, and residential segregation. Finally, we review resistance movements and policies aimed at addressing systemic racism. The seminar pays attention to Asian American experiences.
