ANTH 4020 - Race, Culture, and the Law

Hours: 4
This advanced seminar explores law as a cultural system. Rather than a fixed structure of rules, legal norms and institutional emerge from an ongoing social process. Within this process, actors in the legal system enact, enforce, and sometimes contest certain cultural values and social norms. Drawing on the literature of critical race theory as well as anthropological studies of law, we will discuss the mechanisms by which the US legal system produces unequal outcomes for members of racialized groups and ethnic communities.
Prerequisites: ANTH 1000 or permission of instructor.
