BLST 4325 Race Theory

Prerequisite: PHIL 2010 or permission of instructor. The goal of this course is to facilitate discussions that will help students be able to better articulate a response to current concerns about race and racism. In order to establish both a framework and a purpose for class discussions, content will alternate between theories from the history of race and racism of philosophers such as Immanuel Kant with current theories and events that influence thoughts about race.
