Description: This course will use both historical and contemporary readings focusing on Black and decolonial/anticolonial feminisms as theory and praxis to reflect on the particular experiences of Afro-descendants throughout the Americas. Through a close reading of scholarly and popular texts focusing on the experiences of Black women throughout the Americas (with particular emphasis on Latin America and the Caribbean) we will engage with themes including transnationalism and migration, language, belonging, gender and sexuality, land rights, social inequality and practices of resistance. We will also analyze how art (music, visual and performance art) and activism represent important sites of resistance to contemporary struggles faced by Black communities. Cross-list: ANTH 516.
