HIST 404 - Race, Citizenship, Punishment

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
In this course, we examine the long history of racialized punishment in the United States. How have race and the lack of United States citizenship shaped punishment for various groups-including African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinxs, and indigenous peoples-since the 1600s? We consider historical and current examples such as slavery, the removal and containment of indigenous peoples, Asian exclusion acts, and incarceration and deportation, as we interrogate how evolving ideas about race and citizenship have determined who belongs in the United States, who is punished, and what punishment is deemed just.
