Section Description

This course will introduce you to the sociological study of racial and ethnic relations in the United States. We will use historical-comparative methods to systematically and objectively examine the theoretical and empirical aspects of race and ethnicity. We will focus on the relationships among the major racial and ethnic groups of the United States: Native Americans, European Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans. For each group we will compare such dimensions as their physical and cultural differences from the dominant racial-ethnic group, their timing and manner of entry into U.S. society, their respective social and cultural resources at entry, their material conflicts with other groups, their encounters with prejudice and discrimination, and the degree and process of their cultural, economic, political, and social assimilation into U.S. society. The course will also place the historical experiences of racial and ethnic groups in the United States in context with experiences of racial and ethnic groups in other countries to broaden and deepen our understanding of race and ethnicity.
