S. Hassan.

This course examines the intersection of Africana/Black Studies and Postcolonial Studies.  Although the two fields are often perceived as being distinct from one another, in reality they overlap in significant ways as the result of the immense contributions of African and African Diaspora theorists and intellectuals to the rise and evolution of postcolonial studies. Course readings include original texts by theorists and scholars such as Frantz Fanon, Aimé Cesaire, W E B DuBois, Richard Wright, Edouard Glissant, C.L.R. James, Amilcar Cabral, Sylvia Winters, in addition to Nawal Sadawi, Edward Said,and Gayatri Spivak among others. We will explore the contributions made to both fields by feminist, gender, race, and sexuality studies.
