The African Diaspora refers most literally to the dispersal of people from Africa. But beyond this general definition, what does that concept tell us about Blackness? How does Blackness in the U.S. relate to blackness in the Dominican Republic? Great Britain? Brazil? In this course, we will explore meanings of Blackness in various contexts, thinking about how ideas of race and nation change across space and time. With African Americans at the center of our analysis, we will be regularly discussing racial identity through a global and comparative approach.
