  • Overview

    CONSUMING RACE
    Module Code SSOC609 Level 6 Credit 15
    This module explores how the meanings of race are made and remade in acts of creative consumption. By
    consuming race we make sense of other groups and cultures, communicate our own identities, express needs
    and desires, and discover new ways of thinking and being. Ranging across the terrain of popular culture, and
    finding race in some unusual and unexpected places, this module offers fresh and innovative ways of thinking
    about the centrality of race to our lives.
