Special Topics in Political Science: Racial and Ethnic Politics

This course provides an introduction to the role of race and ethnicity in American politics. We begin by studying the concept and measurement of race with a focus on racial identities and racial categories/classifications. We then examine theories and evidence of how race shapes (a) political attitudes, participation, and mobilization; and (b) political institutions and policymaking.
