Still Separate and Unequal? The Enduring Role of Segregation in American Life
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Racial segregation remains an enduring feature of American life today though many believe segregation is a relic of the past. Using an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates history, sociology, political science, and public policy, this course highlights the complex ways in which legacies of segregation continue to shape life in the US. We will identify how federal, state, and local governments endorsed systemic racism through policies that defined the racial geography and resources of racial groups in the US. Students will engage with policy experts to consider the promise and limits of policies that promote integration within communities and the connection between race, spatial location, and current political divisions.
Restricted to UH students matriculating in Fall 2020 or later.

HNUH238V is part of the Systemic Racism thematic cluster and must be paired with HNUH238B to complete the cluster. Systemic Racism courses will be offered through Spring 2024.
