Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

In this course, we will read and analyze select texts (both oral and written) that were composed between the late 18th century and 2005 by individuals who were enslaved in Africa, and in the United States.  For whom were these texts produced and for what purpose? How much in these texts is history, how much is fiction, and how do we determine the difference? What can these texts tell us about the individual authors and the political, economic and cultural contexts in which they were written? These and other related questions will structure this seminar.

When Offered Spring.
