Black and Indigenous Foundations of U.S. Society
AFAM 232
Spring 2022
Section: 01  

The United States of America rests upon the historic dispossession of indigenous lands and the enslavement of bodies. Our course will chart how these two forces created enduring logics--elimination and alienation--that continue to structure U.S. society. Discussion topics will include whiteness, indigenous slavery, structural racism, settler colonialism, strategies of resistance, and alternative models of belonging and kinship.
