This course offers an overview of whiteness studies in the United States, a subfield within critical race theory, focusing on concepts of consciousness, in/visibility, disavowal and resentment drawing on texts from history, literature, sociology, philosophy and political science. We’ll be examining how whiteness functions at the intersection identities including gender, race, sexuality, class, body ability, nationality and age. We’ll pay some attention to current events, how race and racism impacted recent elections, and struggles to challenge racial domination and hierarchies.
