About the course

The world is interdependent and the movement of people, organisms, technologies, products and capital have historically defined eras and continue to have repercussions in the ways that life is structured and experienced. These historical networks continue to shape lives and structure inequalities. The course material addresses these inequalities with a critical focus on issues of race and whiteness. Through the course you are introduced to theoretical perspectives grounded in feminist, gender studies and intersectional approaches. Through the course you are required to apply these theoretical perspectives in analysis of discourses of race, racism and privilege.
