Course Description

This is an introductory survey course of African American studies. As such, it is comprehensive in nature, covering Black American cultural and social dynamics from the colonial period to the present. Students will explore African-American heritage, identity formation, and social relations largely through the analyses of culture and its intersections with race, class, and gender. The course provides an interdisciplinary perspective of black culture in the U.S., as students will be introduced to readings and lectures based on research insights from the fields of history, anthropology, archaeology, folklore, black feminist studies, cultural studies, and sociology.
