Courses: Race and Ethnic Relations (SOCLB340001)

Spring 2014

Class Number: 1428
This seminar addresses one of the most complex and pervasive problems in the modern world --- the problem of strained racial--ethnic relations within national societies. It begins by examining major theoretical perspectives on racial ethnic relations. Comparing the United States, Brazil, Great Britain, Malaysia, South Africa, and Rwanda, it focuses on the historical backgrounds, current developments (including levels of poverty, education, political representation, social integration, and intermarriage), and government policies, with the objective of identifying the social conditions that have conduced to the worst and the most successful ethnic- racial relations --- in terms of social equality and human rights. Prerequisites: Open to juniors and seniors who have completed at least two courses in Sociology, Political Science, or Anthropology.
