SMNR: Law and Race

Class Unique: 29130
This seminar will explore the intersection of race with legal institutions in both historical and contemporary contexts. Given that the seminar is designed to culminate in a scholarly paper, much of the reading will consist of law review articles and other forms of legal scholarship. Although students are welcome to write about a wide range of topics, the assigned readings will include: racial profiling, racial tokenism, school integration, and critical race theory (and its discontents). Students will be evaluated upon class participation, a written paper, and an oral presentation of the paper in its preliminary stages.
