EDUC 623 Exploring Whiteness
In the United States, we continue to suffer from institutional racism and a White1 supremacist culture. The aim of this course is to more deeply understand the social construction of whiteness, to explore the White supremacist structures and cultures embedded in American society, and to support students in deepening their own understanding of whiteness. Further, this course strives towards anti-racism and posits that this exploration of whiteness can be an important tool in abolishing racism and decentering whiteness as normative and dominant in American culture, education, and society.
