HCOM 343 - Race and Gender Justice


This course examines how social and cultural contexts impact the formation and enforcement of laws, policies, and legal doctrine. We ask, how does the law define criminals, families, citizens, the nation, and gender? Rather than being clear-cut and timeless, the law defines these categories in ways that are racialized, gendered, classed, and historically contingent. Within this context, we examine how different racialized and gendered communities are denied, seek, and achieve justice.
