Race, Culture, and Power
Founded in 1994, Race, Culture, and Power remains one of UNH's most dynamic minors. This program of study enables students to develop critical perspectives on the ways in which cultural differentiation and racial formulations have been used to maintain social, economic and political power and justify inequalities and injustices. Students will engage both U.S. and international perspectives and contexts as they examine how dominant powers use “culture” to maintain subordination and how subordinated peoples use “culture” to resist exploitation.
Students pursuing completion of the program will enroll in an interdisciplinary introductory course (INCO 450: Introduction to Race, Culture and Power), which examines “race” through multiple lenses and explores how constructions of racial difference underpin and impact the organization of societal institutions, programs, and cultural norms around the U.S. and the world.
