HIST 2410 Race and Ethnicity in America
4 semester hours
This course surveys the history of race and ethnicity in the lands that became the United States from the fifteenth century to the present, focusing on three, overlapping themes: (1) the efforts by European nations and the United States to colonize the lands of North America, in part through the subjugation of particular groups such as American Indians, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, and Latin America; (2) the ways that these groups have negotiated such oppression and claimed places within U.S. culture and society; and (3) the intersection of race and ethnicity with other categories of difference, such as gender, class, religion, and sexuality.
HIST Concentration: Race, Gender, and Culture.
University Core fulfilled: Foundations: Studies in American Diversity.
