AMST 250 - Race, Place and Space

Cross-Listed as GEOG 250 
In this discussion-based course we focus on the racialized places of U.S. cities, rural towns and suburbs in an effort to understand how social, historic, and spatial forces have colluded to bring about complex and enduring racial formations. We will look for race and related social categories in places around St. Paul and Minneapolis. By engaging theories about visuality and representation, urban development and suburban sprawl, and social movements for racial justice, we will develop a specialized vocabulary for explaining how race, place, and space are connected. Prerequisite(s): Prior exposure to American Studies, human geography, sociology or race/ethnicity or urban studies. Offered occasionally. (4 Credits)
