SOC 187J (WI), CRN 94151: (BH) Race at Hofstra: Interrogating Ourselves

From the promise of President Obama’s “post-racial era” to the rising rates of racially motivated hate crimes in the past two years, race remains a central issue in the contemporary United States. In the context of these rapidly changing national dynamics, this course will explore how these themes manifest in race relations on campus. The first portion of the class will review the existing literature in order to provide contextual background. Students will then identify core issues on campus that they wish to understand, and they will research those topics using qualitative methods (including ethnographic observation, interviewing, and/or focus groups). Class discussions will encourage collaborative understanding and analysis. Students who sign up for the class should have a genuine and open-minded interest in exploring the idea of race and be prepared to delve into the research strategies that will enable us to accomplish this objective.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
