HIST 598: Studies in Segregation

This course allows students to examine segregation policies and experiences in two contexts, the American South and South Africa. Using both primary and secondary sources, students will focus on “Jim Crow” segregation in the U.S. and the apartheid system in South Africa.

By studying both of these examples of 20th century segregation, students will be able to compare and contrast the policies and experiences of people living under these policies. In addition to exploring the history of segregation in these two places, students will also consider the legacies of Jim Crow and apartheid in the U.S. and South Africa today. Students should leave the course with a deeper knowledge of segregation and apartheid and with familiarity of primary and secondary sources they may want to incorporate into their own classrooms.

This is a synchronous course. Please review the course syllabus for full course information.

This is a Full Semester course. Participants may register for one Full Semester course for the Summer 2021 semester.
