Students will be exposed to a range of interdisciplinary perspectives, theories, and methodologies for exploring the intersectionality of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and racial identities in multiple post-emancipation and modern African/Black diaspora communities. The class readings and discussions will examine the interactions and linkages between and among various African diaspora/descendant and native-born African American/Black peoples, from multiple vantage points, in different historical periods and movements in the U.S., Africa, the Caribbean, Latin American and Europe.
