Critical Race Theory

This course will examine key writings of scholars in Critical Race Theory (CRT), a recent intellectual movement with roots in both Critical Legal Studies (CLS) and civil rights scholarship. Topics covered will include anti-discrimination law, affirmative action, identity politics, the intersection of race, gender and class, and post-modern conceptions of race, among others. Course coverage will emphasize the early CRT articles that focus on foundational jurisprudential concepts. The course will also touch on recent theoretical off-shoots of CRT and critiques of CRT.
