Spring 2013 not offered
This course examines various theoretical and methodological approaches used historically and currently in the field of Black Studies. It is intended to familiarize majors with "classic" texts as well as with more contemporary seminal texts that have come to influence questions and methodologies in the field. Central to our investigation will be elucidating the belief system of Race, which since its emergence in the fifteenth century has played an indispensable role in the formation and reproduction of the ontology and episteme of Western culture. To this effect, the course examines the intersection of the discourse of Race with our present disciplinary system of knowledge that enables its reproduction, both conceptually and institutionally.
