Primary Instructor:

Are there any risks in using "Blackness" as the basis for political mobilization? How has this strategy worked in the past? How is it working now? What difference does geography make to the articulations of "Black" people? After beginning this course with definitions of diaspora and "Blackness," we will turn to the articulation of these terms in key locations and at critical historical moments. In addition to investigating how these terms have worked in different regions and in different eras, we will examine the relationship between these terms and the politics of social mobility, gender, and sexuality. The course will rely not only on important ethnographic, historical, autobiographical, theoretical, and literary texts, but also on film, photography, painting, and dance.
