Poetics of Blackness

ENGL 222
Fall 2022
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AFAM 220
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

This course brings together Black critical theory and contemporary Black poetry in order to think through key sites of conflict in the theorization of Blackness. Rather than offer a literary history of Black poetry, this course is interested in approaching poetry as a crucial node of Black critical thought. Throughout this course we will pay particular attention to questions of form, genre, archive, queerness, gender, affect, visuality, ontology, and temporality as they approach and are undone by Blackness.
