- PSC 383: Special Topic: Critical Race Feminist Theory

Info tab content
In the early 1990s, Critical Race Theory emerged in legal scholarship out of protest movements, administrative upheavals, and critical reexaminations of legal education. This course builds from these groundbreaking texts to examine both the historical underpinnings of the field and its implications for future feminist theory and practice. We will investigate the limits of liberal legal remedies in addressing the severe social realities faced by many women, men, trans folks, and nonbinary people of color of various sexual identities. We will pay particular attention to the persistence of structural, institutional, and everyday racism despite the failure of race as a viable biological concept, and the intersections of racism with gender
