Race and Ethnicity Politics Seminar This course explores constructs of race, ethnicity and gender in modern American politics and the way they influence existing policies, socio-economic processes, public opinion and inter/intra group dynamics across racial and ethnic groups in the United States. We apply concepts of political communication, social movements, (racialized) polarization and political psychology to better understand electoral politics and contemporary policy discourse on criminal justice, poverty, immigration and public health. We dissect how public opinion and political behavior are driven by various mechanisms including but not limited to ideology, partisanship, religiosity, immigration, racial attitudes and group concerns. (We will likely be in-person for most of this course, but there are weeks that will have to be asynchronous.)
