This seminar explores critical theories of race, gender, and sexuality with an emphasis on intersections of those theories and identities. One area of focus will be contrasting the fundamentals of Critical Race Theory ("CRT") with the current media and legislative furor about the role of CRT and anti-racism in education. We will also explore critical theories and law school pedagogy, with a focus on the 1L experience. Finally, this seminar will highlight workshops with invited scholars and highlight emerging issues.
