UPDATE: EMR 133/WGS 1204 Power, Knowledge, Identity: Critical Approaches to Race and Ethnicity: Power, Knowledge, Identity





Eleanor Craig
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30am-11:45am

How might critical attention to race and ethnicity as they intersect with gender and sexuality—and also frameworks of indigeneity and class—shape how we study? How do these lenses shift the questions we ask, the information that counts as data, and the genres of work that we recognize as 'academic'?For those newer to studies of race and ethnicity, this course provides intersectional frameworks for recognizing what assumptions undergird academic projects and fields of study. For those familiar with ethnic studies, it aims to serve as a ‘Theories and Methods’ course, providing tools and strategies for refining one's own interdisciplinary inquiries. Indigenous content featured in weeks 2, 4, 6, 7,  and 9, "as well as lots of readings that talk about colonialism, settler colonialism, and imperialism."
