CSRE 15: Race and College Admissions: The Case of the United States and its Implications for a Global Context

Can racial diversity on college campuses be achieved without affirmative action? This is one of many questions that students, college admissions officers, college counselors, teachers, and university staff have on their minds after the Students for Fair Admissions Inc v Harvard College and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill Supreme Court cases in 2023 outlawed the use of race-based considerations within United States college admissions.

Students can expect to learn more about the history that led up to the rise and fall of affirmative action in higher education admissions, how U.S. college admissions varies across type of institution and selectivity, and why diversity and equity is important for higher education. Although the course has a focus on the U.S. higher education system, there are opportunities for students to explore what higher education admissions looks like in other countries and contexts as well as how international students and non-U.S. citizens are impacted by race-based considerations upon applying to U.S. colleges and universities. It is important to note that this is not a course that will prepare students to apply to college but rather is a class for anyone interested in racial justice, interdisciplinary social science, or higher education.

CSRE 17: To Laugh or Not to Laugh: Exploring Race and Gender Through Humor

Can laughing be innocent, or is it always coded? This course explores the intersections of race, gender, and humor within various cultural and historical contexts. It examines how humor can reflect and shape ideas about race and gender, how it can both challenge and reinforce stereotypes, and how it operates in different media and genres as a form of resistance and oppression. Students will engage in weekly screenings of stand-up comic specials, sitcoms, movies, documentaries, and social media trends, coupled with guest lectures and critical readings that interrogate theories of humor, performance, and gender studies.
