643 - Civil Rights Remedies (2 hours)*
Civil Rights Remedies examines ways to redress ongoing inequities based on race, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation. The class in past years has analyzed inequalities in schools, housing, voting, immigration, and criminal justice, but exact topics are determined by current students. Readings will include edited Supreme Court opinions, but most of the readings will be excerpts from books and articles. Grades are based on class participation and a paper (there is a long-paper option for those wishing to satisfy the upper level writing requirement; students can otherwise choose the option of a short paper and a group project). * This course may be offered for 3 hours during some years.
