Overview

The AES Major

The American and Ethnic Studies of the University of Washington Bothell  will help you develop a critical understanding of the categories that have shaped the emergence and reproduction of systems of power defined in relation to national citizenship. We pay particular attention to diverse and intersecting categories of race, place, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, nationality, and ability.

Our courses examine the relationships between power, inequality, resistance, social and environmental justice, and difference.

We educate students in historical and social inquiry, textual analysis and interpretation, and critical theory and practice.
