ENGL 4560 - The Politics and Joy in Black Women’s Writing


(ALC-AS, CA-AS, SCD-AS)      
Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

L. Warren.

This course will look at how Black women writers negotiated enslavement, Reconstruction, and Jim Crow era segregation while also managing to find avenues of joy, escapism, and a certain kind of freedom through art-making. In addition to reading primary texts by Phillis Wheatley, Hannah Bond, Jessie Redmon Fauset, and others we will also look at critical and theoretical work by Toni Morrison, Saidiyah Hartman, Barbara Fields, and Karen Fields.
