Black Reconstruction

Some have called the U.S. Civil War the “second American revolution” or the completion of the first American revolution. Others claim that the war of independence and Civil War were not revolutions, but had tremendous revolutionary potential. We will read W.E.B. DuBois’ Black Reconstruction (Oxford University Press, 2007) in whole, and for more recent research, the middle part of Steven Hahn’s A Nation Under Our Feet: Black Political Struggles in the Rural South (Harvard University Press, 2003).

Political Economy of Racism

This four session seminar explores the political economy of racism with Professor Manu Karuka. We will work to denaturalize racism as something that needs to be explained, rather than accepted as a facet of social life. We will analyze race as a process and relationship internal to the capital relation itself.
