Introduction to Africana Studies: Black Radical Thought and Praxis

AFAM 101
Fall 2022
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

This course will introduce students to the intellectual history and political economy of Africa and the African diaspora. It will take up important historical issues and questions that continue to animate, even haunt the modern world: race, race relations, and anti-black racism; the universality of whiteness and white supremacy; the fungibility of the black body; the vulnerability and precarity of black life; and the complex and "unthinkable" histories and afterlives of chattel slavery, racial capitalism, settler colonialism, and the Middle Passage.
