LASS299 African Global Diaspora 3 cr.


Global Black Studies. This course intends to guide students in an introductory survey of Global Black Studies. The latter are more and more imposing themselves in a discipline at the crossroad of literature, history, literary criticism, and ideologies based on the analyses of Black life within a global diaspora. Visual didactic materials and the most representative books lead the study of the historical, political, religious, social and economic dynamics of the Black experiences all around the world. All through the course, a particular stress will be put on the perception of the Black (by Blacks and by others), prejudices accumulated all through history, the diaspora in time, identities, racism, artistry, underdevelopment versus development, and creeds. Texts are selected in such a way that a chronological line goes far in the past, but also predicts much for the future.
