Capstone Seminar: Race and Power in World History


Explores how ideas and practices defined by "racial difference" have driven world history. Much of what we know, or think we know, about race is derived from our particular history and experience in the United States. But American ideas about race, and American history of racial hierarchy, represent one of many configurations of race around the world. By thinking about race comparatively, and by focusing on how race has worked in a variety of historical and geographical contexts, we will be able to assess the importance of race in creating the world we live in.
