FMST 102 Feminist Critical Race Studies

Working from the perspective that race is a cultural invention and racism is a political, economic, and social relation, investigates how race is produced as a meaningful and powerful social category, examines the effects of racism as a social relation, and argues for the necessity of combining feminist and critical race studies. By considering different historical periods and places, aims to equip students with the tools necessary to critically examine the production and reproduction of race and racism in the U.S.
