課程概述

This course aims to introduce students to the fundamental theories and concepts of race and ethnicity. These theories and concepts enrich classic sociological canons and provide sociologists racial/ethnic lens for insightful analyses of the racialised institutions behind social phenomena. The first six weeks of this course will focus on these fundamental race/ethnicity theories and concepts. We will also investigate the role of history in the construction of race/ethnicity theories and explore how we can connect the contemporary globalised, multiracial world with these theories generated in the Western context (mostly with the White/Black divide). We then examine how race and ethnicity shape the individual’s personal, cultural, and national identity, interact with the capitalist society, serve as a form of social classification, and how they are challenged or reinforced by educational systems in various cultural contexts.  

課程目標
At the end of this course, you are expected to have a general understanding of major concepts and theories around race and ethnicity and critique race-related social issues and events with scholarly arguments. 
課程要求
1. Your attendance at this course and active participation in class discussions are essential to the successful completion of this course.

2. Two memos on readings: You have to write and send to me via email two reading memos by the second of December. The length of the memos should be between 800 and 1500 words. These memos should be written in either English or Chinese and include (1) the main research questions or goals of the selected reading, (2) research methods, (3) the summary of the author's arguments and research findings, and (4) your own thoughts and opinions on the author's findings or arguments. The readings can be the papers or books listed in this syllabus or saved in the NTU Cool. You can also choose race/ethnicity-related articles that interest you in peer-reviewed academic journals.

3. You have to work with another 3-4 people in this course on a group project, which includes a group presentation and a group report of 3,500-5,000 words in English submitted by 25th December. In this project, you are expected to discuss a race/ethnicity-related social issue or event, e.g., Black Lives Matter, COVID's restrictions on the mobility of migrant workers, and so on. The discussions about the presentation and report should provide the context and account of the chosen case, why this case is ethnicity or race-related, and its influences and implications for policies and future research. I will explain my expectation on your report and presentation by showcasing an example in the first class.
