The Social Meaning of Race

Course Number: 
61400

This course will explore "race" in three ways. First, how does race operate as an ideology?; that is, how do people understand race, how are those understandings shaped and how do they in turn shape perception? Secondly, how race operates as a structuring device? How does it determine life-chances? Thirdly, how does it operate in the field; that is, in particular organizational contexts, how does race affect the content and delivery of social services.
This course fulfills the Human Diversity Requirement.
