Critical Race Theory: Intellectual History and Social Practice

This seminar will explore classic and recent work that defines the expanding field of critical race studies. We will inquire into the work of race: the ways that theory is shaped by practice and practice is guided by theory. Our readings will be interdisciplinary and will include thinkers from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries who have grappled with definitions of “race,” with the ways that race intersects with other categories of identity, and with the potential for the concept of “race” to inform anti-racist forms of agency and practice.
