Primary Instructor:

This course is a series of lectures on a topic related to the current scholarly research of the instructor. This semester’s lectures are by Damani Partridge. This series thinks through the relationships between European Enlightenment, Holocaust memory, and contemporary democratic participation. It will examine, in particular, the ways in which "Blackness" intervenes in philosophical and everyday discussions about enlightenment and genocide, examining the relevance of the Haitian revolution to French democracy, and post- World War II African-American military occupation to a democratizing and denazifying Germany. From Berlin post-migrant theater’s use of “Black Power,” to the contemporary articulations of refugee rights, the series will investigate the extent to which articulations of “Blackness’’ enable democratic participation in a context in which that participation demands accountability for Nazi perpetration and the associated proof that one is not anti-Semitic or a terrorist. Lectures will be held on 1/19/18, 2/23/18, 3/9/18, and 4/6/18, from 3-5pm, in the Rackham Assembly Hall.
