Week 6 Lectures Part VII, "How It Happened: Race and Gender Issues in U.S. Law," demonstrates how race, class, gender, and  sexuality have been institutionalized and regulated throughout the history of the United States. This part is  composed almost entirely of legal documents such as texts of laws, court decisions, and the like, the  documents appearing without specific historical context. This absence of historical context allows for thinking  about these selections as constituting a "text" that critiques the notion of American justice as applied to women,  people of color, and people other than heterosexual. For Cultural Report #3, you will have the opportunity to  propose possible research topics for me to consider as I prepare the topic options for the Final Essay you will  be writing during the final 2 weeks of class. You may want to think about doing research to provide the historical  context for particular documents, perhaps even to find other such documents. Because this critique (mentioned  above) is available from the words of the documents themselves, irrefutable evidence is found for the history of  oppression in this country. As you're reading them, keep in mind that these are not "ancient" history and that  many of these courtroom battles are still being fought in various ways. Also, if you haven't already, you may

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
