Yale University teaches students 'counternarratives around whiteness'

• http://www.thecollegefix.com, BEN DECATUR

Yale University is offering a course this semester which aims to help students understand and counteract "whiteness," exploring such topics as "white imagination," "white property" and "white speech."

According to the syllabus for "Constructions of Whiteness" obtained by The College Fix, the English course is an "interdisciplinary approach to examining our understanding of whiteness."

The class, which is apparently being offered for the first time this semester, discusses "whiteness as a culturally constructed and economically incorporated entity, which touches upon and assigns value to nearly every aspect of American life and culture."
