Race, Class, and Apartheid (POL4207.01)

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.
