This course offers graduate students an introduction to sociological theory on race and empirical research at the intersection of race and social institutions. Students will first engage theoretically with race as a social construct and the role of institutions in society, before surveying work on race within each of the following institutional contexts: schooling, the criminal justice system, employment, housing and health care. Readings will include a mix of qualitative and quantitative approaches. Class meetings will focus on discussion of readings with the aim of identifying directions for further research and, in the second half of the semester, the development of research papers.

When Offered Fall.
