About the Course:

This course seeks to explore the multiethnic experience to gain a greater understanding of our ambiguous position in the world. We usually think of race in terms of distinct categories; one is either “black” or “white”, but as mixed people, our mere existence blurs these established boundaries. This makes it increasingly difficult to craft a concrete identity for navigation through the various social spheres of modern life.

Throughout the semester we will delve into what it means to be “mixed”. How do we construct our identity in a society where we are meant to “pick and choose” the aspects of who we are? To answer this complex question we will create a safe space to share our own experiences through collective discussion. Lectures will cover themes brought up in the readings and weekly assignments will allow for continual digestion of provided materials.
