Race and Resistance Studies

Race and Resistance Studies logo

In 2010, the College of Ethnic Studies formally established a comparative program: Race and Resistance Studies (RRS) was started as an interdisciplinary program program and recently became a full-fledged department, with two minors and several academic programs in development. Coursework focuses upon processes of racialization—how race-related discourses/practices create and perpetuate social problems—across diverse ethnic and racialized communities. The core faculty in RRS provides students with tools for examining how institutions oppress communities of color. Students explore the creative and complex ways in which communities of color express multiple forms of resistance. In doing so, we further explore how domestic issues are shaped by transnational processes and how oppression and resistance are shaped by the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality.
