GWSS 1911: Black Looks: Race, Gender and Representation

3 CreditsFreshman Seminar

This seminar explores the writing of bell hooks, one of the foremost feminist thinkers alive today. We begin with her earliest writings that expose the inherent racism of white middle-class feminism and its institutionalization in predominantly white university settings. We go on to examine her autobiographic writings that illuminate the intersections between place, identity, and black subjectivity. We will also study and debate her incisive critiques of portrayed blackness in American popular culture including film, television, and literature.
