LACS 280F - Prison Industrial Complex

Description
Why look at race through the lens of the law or at the encounters between race and law? Has race ceased to be a legal term? At the intersection of race, gender, class, and sexuality what does the law see? Does it see those at the intersection? Can the U.S. do without race? Can the racialized as inferior claim their rights to have their own language, knowledges, spiritual practices, their music and art be central to their education? What is the legality of disrupting the racialized nature of knowledge production? Two related schools of thought on race and the law—Critical Race Theory and Lat Crit—enable us to consider these questions from a point of view that has not been at the center of U.S. legal system. This point of view is some of the time outside looking in and some of the time inside the legal system to find absences. Some of the time the conceptual and linguistic incongruities are the focus of the analysis. Several critical race theorists works are narratives that place at the center of the problematic of the legal status of racism. Both Richard Delgado and Derrick Bell write in the form. The course aims at learning to see race, the intersection between race, gender, class, sexuality from these ways of engaging and understanding law and the legal system.
