SOCI 215 - SOCIOLOGY OF RACE RELATIONS
This course studies inter-group relations. We will look at the increasing diversity of U.S. society which has resulted from major historical and contemporary processes (i.e., colonization, slavery, and immigration). The question of who has fared better in the U.S., and why some groups are more successful than others, have been central concerns in the sociology of race relations. Does social class of origin among immigrants help or hinder their adjustment to a new society? Does religion make a difference today? Is color important? Many think it matters the most. Finally, the course will examine how we, as a society, have historically constructed "the other", to justify economic and other kinds of exploitation. Our theoretical framework will include the study of structural and attitudinal factors which contribute to discrimination, prejudice, and general intolerance.
