21A.240 Race and Science (MIT)
This course examines one of the most enduring and influential forms of identity and experience in the Americas and Europe, and in particular the ways race and racism have been created, justified, or contested in scientific practice and discourse. Drawing on classical and contemporary readings from Du Bois to Gould to Gilroy, we ask whether the logic of race might be changing in the world of genomics and informatics, and with that changed logic, how we can respond today to new configurations of r

In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,This segment shows the interviewer trying to probe for whether the student attributes the same macroscopic properties of substances to atoms. He asks if the atoms of aluminum would be bendable and shiny like the foil. The student responds that it's too small to bend and that atoms are colorless but it is not clear that the student knows that the properties of substances and atoms are different without further pro
