EDUC 255 - Race, Representation, and Resistance in U.S. Schools

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
This course interrogates the intersections of race, racism and schooling in the US context. In this course, we examine this intersection at the site of educational policy, media and public attitudes towards schools and schooling- critically examining how representations in each shape the experiences of youth in school. Expectations, beliefs, attitudes and opportunities reflect societal investments in these representations, thus becoming both reflections and driving forces of these identities. Central to these representations is how theorists, educators and youth take them on, own them and resist them in ways that constrain possibility or create spaces for hope. Colette Cann.

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods.
