Course Description

LAW 586 - Special Topics in CRS - Arabs, Middle Eastern and Muslim Americans and the Law

The course will examine the role law and American legal institutions have played racially defining and categorizing Arab, Middle Eastern and Muslim Americans. Particular attention will be paid to the political and social consequences of this racialization for the subject, as well as the strategies Arab, Middle Easterners and Muslim Americans have employed to challenge the ways in which a variety of legal regimes (including, but not limited to, immigration and criminal law) have marginalized them.  The Course does not assume any prior knowledge of this subject area.
