WGSS 52.06 Black Queer & Trans Futures: An Experiment

Engaging with the histories and present realities of colonial dispossession, racial violence and cisheteropatriarchy on campus and beyond, we will examine and craft visions of alternative futures grounded in prison abolition. Drawing on archival research, critical theory and speculative fiction from Black queer and trans thinkers such as Miss Major, Edouard Glissant, Marie Vieux-Chauvet, Octavia Butler, and Samuel Delany, our goal will be to challenge our current carceral order, chart how we move past it, and imagine what liberatory prison abolitionist futures lie beyond.

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.
