People do look different all over the world. Anyone can tell an African Ibo from a
Maghribi (N. African) Arab or an Asian from a European. Are these differences real?
Do these differences account for variations in human character or ability? Why do
people hold preconceived judgments or convictions within and outside their own culture?
What does race mean? What is racism?
I designed this course to provide students with an overview of significant issues focusing
on the interplay between ethnicity, race, class and gender. This course will examine the
different approaches to racism and racialized identities to analyze structures of power
relations in different historical periods and geographical locations. We will study
theories on human classification as a process of exclusion and generating inequality from
antiquity to pseudo-scientific modern racism. We will read important texts to help us
understand the origins, formation and development of ideas of race and racism in the
context of religion, religious crusades, slavery, colonialism and imperialism. As a case
study we will discuss the ideas and notions Africans and Westerners held about each
other and how the language used to designate the ‘other’ changed over time.
