HST-1017 - History of Race and Racism (3)


Students survey the idea of race and history of racism. They will focus on the emergence of the idea of race and trace the manner in which it has evolved over time. The course examines influences of science, religion, nationalism, politics and economics on the definition of race. Students consider the implications of race by exploring ways in which race has been used to justify slavery, apartheid and the holocaust, as well as current forms of economic, political and social discrimination. Students will use historical documents, news reports, films, documentaries and selected literature from various countries to approach the topic.
