ENGL 628 - African Amer Lit & Criticism
Atlanta. DC. New Orleans. Flint. The South. The inner city. MLK Boulevard. The Black Belt. In the U.S., there is an abundance of case studies on the racialization of place. In this course, we will interrogate processes and histories of racialization, investigate how Black artists construct narratives of fictional and actual places, and analyze the work of representation in the staying power of racial narratives associated with place and space. Course material will draw from literature, geography, housing policy, Black feminism, film, and cultural studies.
