SOC 240 - People of Mixed Descent (CD) (4)

This course examines the experiences of mixed race populations (mulattos, mestizos, mixed blood Native Americans, and Eurasians) in comparative perspective. Using these experiences, as well as sociological theories (assimilation, third culture, marginality, and multiculturalism), the course examines how race is a social and political construct, with tangible and material repercussions. Offered intermittently.
