College of Arts & Sciences. Anthropology. AN 594: Racial Formations in the Global South

What does race mean outside of North America or Europe? How do race and racialization shape everyday life in the Global South? What are the linkages between broader systems and contextual specificities of race? Throughout this course, we will pursue these questions through a critical and ethnographic lens. We will develop a global understanding of how race is formed, undone, and practiced. Our goal is to understand race and racialization relationally by centering on the Global South.
