Culture, Race and Ethnicity (V3026)
15 credits, Level 5
In this module, you examine the relationship between ideas of culture, race and ethnicity, both historically and in contemporary society.
You'll study a range of empirical examples that demonstrate how the concepts have been used - sometimes separately, sometimes in interlocking ways - in political projects or movements. Particular focus will be placed on the construction of 'whiteness'.
Examples may include:
- the use of race in nineteenth century colonial administration
- the politics of ethnicity in post-war London
- the rise of the new right in contemporary Europe.
