(crosslisted) AMST 4556 , ENGL 4556 LSP 4556 VISST 4556  
(ALC-AS, HST-AS, LA-AS)      

Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading (no audit).

Co-meets with ARTH 6556 /ENGL 6565 /LSP 6565 .

A. Cohen-Aponte, J. Rickard.

Exploring a genealogy of Latinx, Afro-Latinx, Black, Indigenous, and Chicana/o/x theorizations of modernity and identity, the course asks, what is the decolonial? Is it a space between the colonial and post-colonial? Is it a creative process, an intellectual theorization, or a historical period? Is it a performance, intervention, or embodied experience? Tracing a historical trajectory of the decolonial in poetry, performance, installation, and visual art, the course examines decolonial modes of making and being from the sixteenth to the twenty first century.
