Deconstructing Race (Transnationalizing Race Series)

Fall 2021: Tuesday and Thursday 1:30pm-2:45 pm
Ross-Blakely Hall, Room 171

  • How can we address contemporary global inequalities that are rooted in racist ideologies?
  • How are race and racism related to economic, social, cultural, and ecological inequities?
  • How can we better understand the broad geographical and historical consequences of race?

How have racism and racialization impacted different regions of the globe?

This Lab will investigate the category of race in a transnational framework, examining diverse geographical and historical manifestations of race in relation to social, economic, political, and cultural practices. Looking at various colonial legacies, philosophical texts, and works of art, this lab will encourage reflection and interpretation of the language and idea of race in order to understand the different experiences of racialized populations and communities, with the explicit goal of promoting a more inclusive vision of humanity for the twenty-first century.


  • Collaborators TBA
