New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2023

WGSS 66.36 Histories of the Carceral State

This course examines the construction of and resistance to the carceral state across United States history. How race and the law have shaped each other over time is the central question of the course, one we will parse alongside a focus on gender, sexuality, immigration, disability, and political economy. We will approach criminalization as a political, economic, and cultural process that reflects and reproduces dominant ideologies for those behind bars and those on the outside.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
