This course examines Black women's texts from an interdisciplinary Black feminist perspective. It will cover Black women's literatures, film, musics, and theory from the USA, the Caribbean, and Canada. The course will cover some of the specific concerns Black women have raised during and after transatlantic slavery: womanhood; bodies; representation and representational politics; and feminist and womanist debates. Using the themes and ideas drawn from transatlantic slavery (of black womanhood/bodies, resistance, writing strategies), the course will address how post-slavery and contemporary Black feminist matters are rooted in a historical legacy and thinking beyond slavery/oppression and white feminisms.
  Course Description
