Law and Literature: Race Matters


This course explores the intersectionalities of race and law. We'll focus on issues like sexuality, adoption, and marriage, the era and residue of Jim Crow, as well as the meaning and intent of affirmative action in educational contexts. We'll use case law and some literary fiction to expose and explore these issues with a particular interest in understanding how race matters in the construction of US citizenship.
