Description

This course will introduce students to historical narratives that center on same-gender intimacies and gender non-conformity in African Diasporic communities. Students will survey the growing body of interdisciplinary scholarship on such topics and interrogate how black queer cultural workers craft(ed) historical narratives (via films, poems, plays, and fiction) to (re)imagine pasts and possible futures.

Course Requirements:

Course assignments include a short mid-term paper and a final assignment in which students will have the opportunity to craft a mini-lecture about a topic related to but not fully covered in the course.
