Bui, Anthony Kim, Angela Kong, Seth San Juan, Lila Sharif Course Description Despite the deep historical roots of visions of the “assimilation” of immigrants, the “extinction” of indigenous peoples, and the emergence of a “color-blind” society, the social construction of race and ethnicity continues to exert potent social and political and effects in the 21st century. This course introduces students to the basic social and theoretical issues in the field of race and ethnic relations, paying particular attention to the complex relationship between race, rights, and citizenship. We will be attentive to the intersectionality of race, class, and gender; that is, to the ways in which these categories operate with and through each other to produce and maintain social inequality.
