B756 Race, American Society & The Law

Description This three-credit course will explore key themes in modern civil rights law. In the wake of the 2008 Presidential election, many political commentators hailed the dawning of a new, post-racial society. However, persistent racial inequalities, recent court opinions, and current legislative debates have demonstrated that race continues to be a powerful force in American society. We will engage competing visions of racial equality through law by examining contemporary topics such as affirmative action, school resegregation, and the criminal justice system. This course will also highlight the limitations of law in racial reform and will consider the ways in which law is often complicit in perpetuating race, gender, and class hierarchies. The course#s weekly readings will consist of a wide range of scholarly materials from diverse perspectives.
