ARCH 1518

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2021-2022.

Structured as a discussion seminar and design workshop, the course will introduce students to strategies of architectural representation through an engagement with literature connected to the critical framework of Afro-pessimist discourse. Using the language of architectural drawing, students will expand upon selected readings - including those by Dionne Brand, Saidiya Hartman, and Christina Sharpe - to illuminate an understanding of Blackness and belonging, one interwoven with our shared history of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its still unfolding afterlife.
