Description:
This course is a 5-week examination of the origin, development, and impact of the concept of ?race? in American culture from the beginning of English settlement in 1607 to the present. Since then, the settlers have distinguished themselves from the native people they encountered and the Africans who they imported, purchased and enslaved for labor. At the same time, the scientific revolution emerged bringing classification of people, plants, animals, minerals, etc. This led to a belief in different ?types? of people and a hierarchy of these types. Joseph Albert, Comte de Gobineau popularized this idea in An Essay on the Inequality of the Human Races in 1753.
