WGSS 66.09 Black Consciousness and Black Feminisms

This seminar seeks to decenter mainstream (what bell hooks calls “imperialist, white supremacist, capitalist, [heteronormative], patriarchal”) thinking to understand the world differently.  Reading primary and scholarly texts from the US, Caribbean, and Africa about the Black Consciousness Movement and black feminisms, we will trace the evolution of thinking about race, gender, sexuality and their interrelationships through time and across space. Assignments include weekly reading response papers and an independent research project.

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.
