Black Feminisms in the Americas: Politics, Representation, and Queer Ruminations of Elsewhere

AFAM 246
Spring 2019
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: FGSS 264
Course Cluster: Queer Studies

This course will explore Black feminist intellectual productions, highlighting the many theoretical, political, and critically imaginative elements found throughout early and contemporary works. Our discussions will reflect on power, the production of knowledge, identity, inequality, and the politics and perils of Black feminist struggle. Relying on a variety of texts and media--such as writings, visual & performance arts, poetry, music, and film--students should expect to engage with key issues and debates, along with the epistemological challenges offered by queer of color critique, trans/national perspectives, and social alternatives emerging from across the Black (feminist) diaspora.
