For this seminar, you will practice doing some research on your own! You will find and use 2-4 sources to complete the assignment. 

Like gender, race is a fundamental part of identity politics in our culture. 

For this seminar you will write an analysis of an issue surrounding race in the US. 

– First, think about the definition of race: how might the social construct of race shape the way race becomes a political discussion? Do race and gender have any commonalities in the way that they are constructed and the political repercussions of their definitions? Tip: “Google” the phrase “Race as a “Social Construction” and review the current discourse to get the wheels turning.

Craft a “mini-essay” (about 4-6 paragraphs, 600+ words) using ideas from 2-4 texts/sources you found (could be an article, video, documentary, podcast, etc.) firsthand experience, and/or any other insight you can offer to this conversation. In other words, What’s your Critical Reaction? Remember that we are building toward an understanding of identity politics; shape your responses to that end. Make sure to use summary, paraphrase and quote to accurately and succinctly explain ideas in each source.
