HIST 350 - Race, Gender, and Science


How has science informed definitions of race, sex, and gender in the past? This class examines the scientific discourses and methodologies that have, historically, sought to explain racial and sexual difference. We will examine scholarship that considers the social effects of science and the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and science. Among the topics under consideration: the definitions of deviance in colonial and post-colonial societies, eugenics, contemporary debates on race, sexuality, and genetics. Offered alternate years.
