Greenberg Seminar: Will we ever be post-racial? The Persistent Relevance of Race in America
LAWS 92000
(A, BID)Many celebrated the 2008 election of President Barack Obama as the moment the U.S. transitioned to a post-racial era. By 2016, however, it has become clear that race is still central to public policy discussions about policing, economic inequality, immigration, and terrorism, among other areas. In this Greenberg, we examine an emerging literature on the persistence of race and racial ideologies and their consequences for America, particularly as the U.S. becomes an increasingly multi-ethnic and multi-racial society. Graded Pass/Fail.
