Title: Race: Beyond Social Construction and Biological Determinism
Description: Syllabus for a co-taught sophomore honors seminar on race that integrates biological and socio-cultural subfields/approaches to explore topics such as the historical, social, and cultural contingency of racial categories and their consequences; the evolution and patterning of human biological variation; the use of genomic information to refute and reinforce the salience of race as a biological concept; and the enduring impact of race and racism in American culture and individuals' constructions of their identities. Through site visits to local institutional contexts where data about race is collected, students will observe directly how race is made real in Cincinnati. Building on a series of applied writing assignments that integrate these visits with course readings and discussions, the seminar culminates with students designing community engagement projects that translate their discoveries about race for local audiences.
