ENGL 53.35 From Diaspora Practices to Theory

What is an epic and how do its imaginary, cultural, and rhetorical impulses of displacement, unknown cartographies, madness, new identities, conceptual crossroads and translation lead to an eventual theorization of diaspora?  The course has three inter-related goals: to study six examples of epic in the Black Diaspora moving from West Africa to the Anglo-Franco-Hispano-phone Caribbean; 2. to relate these texts to diaspora pathogen and food-ways, spiritual practices and converging African and New World histories; and 3. to consider diaspora and chaos theory.
