Description

This first-year seminar invites students to interrogate how movement (forced and voluntary, physical and imagined) shaped the experiences/demographics of African-descended peoples in the United States. This course will consider four broad movements of people: The Transatlantic Slave Trade, Domestic Slave Trade, and the First Great Migration. Students will analyze how these migrations and understandings of mobility (or the ability to move easily) shaped political ideologies, cultural forms, community structures, demographics, and intimate life. Course materials include interdisciplinary scholarship, documentaries, and podcasts, as well as an array of primary sources (poetry, visual arts, music, newspapers, short stories, etc.).

Intended Audience:

All first-year students welcome.
