New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

AAAS 68.10 Afro/Black Paris: Past, Present, and Future

 What is “Afro/Black Paris?” This study away course is designed to take students on a journey not to a destination called “Black Paris,” but rather through the lived experiences of African descended people—from racial enslavement until today—who have been racialized-as-black in a “raceblind” France. What are the myths and realities associated with life in Paris and France, past, present, and future? What accounts for African American immigration to the City of Light? What does belonging look like in this extraordinary city that Ernest Hemingway refers to as “a moveable feast?” Or, as James Baldwin writes, “[i]n America, the color of my skin had stood between myself and me; in Europe, that barrier was down.” Was it? – one of many pertinent questions examined in this course.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:INT or SOC; WCult:CI

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
