Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

This course proposes the study of the black African in Western literature and painting from the ancient world to the present.  We will concentrate on the major representations of what has been perceived as a minor figure in both literature and painting in order to trace its ramifications from Middle-Ages to the modern and contemporary periods.  The class will, at the same time, underline the role of black writers and artists in the convulsions of this history.  Our critical trajectory will be that of "cultural studies" as initiated and developed by sch theoreticians as Alain Locke, Stuart Hall, Simon Gikandi.
