Race, Class, and Apartheid (PHI4171.01)

Paul Voice

This class examines the South African system of Apartheid, seeking to understand its origins, practice, and consequences. We will read from a wide range of sources including scholarly and political texts to understand how race and class structured South African society and how the transition to a post-Apartheid society has confronted the past. We will frame this discussion by engaging with South African literature, art, film, and music.
