In the past few years there has been an explosion in the fields of African American Gender History, African American Gender Studies, and in studies of race and sexuality. This course will explore new trends in the scholarship, focusing on work published since 2015. In the first couple of weeks we will do a close reading of foundational texts that have provided a theoretical foundation for this new work. Next, we will turn to new books that think about race, gender, sexuality and black history. We will pay particular attention to work that explores the politics of the raced body, the afterlife of slavery, black women’s sexuality, and queer of color critique. This course is an interdisciplinary look at the black past—focusing on the scholarship of historians and literary critics.
