Graduate Course on Ethnicity and Race
Next semester I will be teaching my first graduate course ever. It is on the history of ethnicity and race. Right now I am compiling the reading lists. I definitely want to include works by Valery Tishkov, Etienne Balibar, John Rex, George Fredrickson, and Walker Connor. I have quite a bit on the USSR and some stuff on South Africa. But, I don't have much on ethnicity in Ghana yet. I am going to try and rectify this deficit over break. I am also wondering how I should balance general works with those dealing with specific case studies. Altogether I am thinking of assigning ten books and ten journal articles.
