GEOG 3341: Black Geographies

3 Credits

This course will engage the sub-discipline of Black Geographies by looking at Geographical literature on the question of Blackness as well as case studies on the ways in which Afro-descendant populations make place. Course readings and films will attend to Blackness as it manifests across the African Diaspora, with specific focus on the Americas. We will discuss the experiences and struggles of enslaved Africans in the Americas, struggles against slavery, the ways in which we can understand histories of Blackness, and different forms of struggle employed by Afro-descendant populations today. At the end of the semester students will have a solid grounding in the literature around Black Geographies, as well as a nuanced understanding of the different ways in which Black populations analyze and create space.
