This seminar provides an interdisciplinary, supportive community for graduate students in the early stages of the dissertation who are working on critical race studies in the ancient, medieval, and early modern worlds (before 1800). Participants will learn research methodologies for utilizing archival sources and explore interdisciplinary approaches to the study of race in the premodern world, particularly considering intersection of racialization and race-making processes with the study of gender, sexuality, geography, and space. Each student will workshop a draft dissertation proposal or chapter and receive constructive feedback from the instructors and seminar members.
