Update: After Backlash, University of Chicago Appears to Cancel ‘The Problem of Whiteness’ Class

The Gateway Pundit reported on an upcoming class for The University of Chicago’s Winter term called “The Problem of Whiteness.”

The course description reads:

Critical race theorists have shown that whiteness has long functioned as an “unmarked” racial category, saturating a default surround against which non-white or “not quite” others appear as aberrant. This saturation has had wide-ranging effects, coloring everything from the consolidation of wealth, power and property to the distribution of environmental health hazards. Yet in recent years, whiteness has resurfaced as a conspicuous problem within liberal political discourse.This seminar examines the problem of whiteness through an anthropological lens, drawing from classic and contemporary works of critical race theory. Attending to the ways in which various forms of social positioning and historical phenomena intersect in the formation of racial hierarchy, we will approach whiteness as a “pigment of the imagination” with worldmaking (and razing) effects.

After backlash from numerous articles and torrent of comments on the University’s social media accounts, it appears that the class has been cancelled.

The original sign-up showed 25 available seats.
