Credit(s): 4
Lecture: 4
Non-Lecture: 0
General Education Area(s): Western Civilization, Humanities

Explores the history of Africans and people of African descent against what Patrick Manning calls the European “tale of modernity” (xv).  Rather than offering a chronological history of specific regions, we will focus on the interconnections of peoples and belief systems throughout Europe, Africa, and the Americas.  Interdisciplinary at the core, Black Humanities is the study of moral, social, and political alternatives and meanings embodied in cultures, epistemologies, and literatures globally. The course will explore how African diasporic ideas have not only resisted and/or re-imagined more familiar narratives of Western Civilization but oftentimes they can also be identified in them.

Offered: Not on a Regular Basis
