About the course:

Ideas about race and racial divisions have assumed many different shapes during US history, changing in response to such events as the abolition of slavery, segregation, and the civil rights movement. The course explores representations of race in American literature across various historical periods and provides a framework for understanding the underlying cultural, political, and historical forces informing the colour line in the U.S.
