Introduction to Africana Studies: Examining the Spatial Dynamics That Constitute Diasporic Life

AFAM 101
Fall 2024
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

In this course students will be introduced to the political-intellectual projects that have informed Africana thought, such as Negritude, Cimarronaje, and Garveyism. To understand the breadth of Africana interventions requires a geographic lens. That said, students will examine the spatial dynamics (structures and experiences) that constitute diasporic life. One problematic that students will consider is the extent to which the transatlantic has dominated representations of diasporic life.
