CORE 003 SC - Making Radical Sense of Power
This course explores the possibilities of counterhegemonic political action given the existence of racialized relationships of privilege and political quiescence in the face of obvious racial inequality. Building on the Core II course "Making Sense of Power," it examines how our contemporary self-understandings emerge from our racialized practices and social consciousness. Students will work collectively to develop intentional political practices borne out of theoretical understandings, conduct site visits to organizations that engage in political campaigns for racial justice, examine current and historical campus-based efforts at activism focused on racial justice, and identify the texts necessary to support their collective efforts. Responsibility for the success of the course hinges on student commitment to political action in practice.
