This seminar examines foundational and emerging questions and methods in contemporary African American Studies and Literary Criticism. We'll pair foundational and emerging scholarship with key case studies (e.g. literature, drama film, visual arts, movements) to exam points of convergence and tension, as scholars engage with shared texts (e.g., Harriet Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, ) across multiple areas of inquiry (e.g. the environment, gender and sexuality, enslavement and its afterlives, colonialisms) and approaches (print culture, materialisms, critical fabulation, queer of color critique, Black feminist criticism, etc.). What does it mean to study African American literature, history, and culture now?
