AFRICAAM 46: Cape to Cairo: Decolonization and African Urban Life 1940s-1960s (CSRE 46, HISTORY 46S, URBANST 144U)

Decolonization across Africa was complicated, messy and sometimes violent. It was also an important moment for (re) imagining and (re)structuring society resulting in fascinating historical encounters among different groups. This course explores decolonization through the lens of different African urban spaces. In doing so, we shall focus on the major conflicts, debates and issues that emerged in the moment of decolonization. Additionally, we shall explore the different ways Africans survived, lived and thrived in the cities. Finally, we shall explore the relationships between the colonial and postcolonial eras through African urban spaces.

AFRICAAM 60: Spoken Word Poetry and Resistance: 1990's-Present (CSRE 42)

In the 1990's the Spoken Word movement exploded onto the public scene in multiple forms. The decade marked the birth of the Poetry Slam movement, the 'Golden Age' of rap, and the re-emergence of Poetry as Performance. In the contemporary moment Kendrick Lamar's Pulitzer Prize-winning album, 'DAMN', Mahogany Browne's anthemic poem 'Black Girl Magic', and the rise of online Spoken Word platforms like 'Button Poetry' are all evidence of a similar present-day uprising in the centuries-old Spoken Word tradition. This course will combine workshop and seminar approaches to provide students with space to read and examine the Black Spoken Word tradition from the 1990s to the present, and to write and perform their own work.

AFRICAAM 61: Theater and Social Justice: Skills for Rethinking Everything (CSRE 43, TAPS 61)

In this course we will employ theater foundations (writing, acting, staging and direction) to interrogate individual and collective belief systems prescribed through our lineage, geography, genetics, culture and class. We will ask big questions like: How do we rethink collective narratives? What can be made in the midst of ongoing pandemics and emergencies? Who am I within and beyond my current circumstances? Together we will learn from diverse practitioners within science fiction, documentary filmmaking, theater, site-specificity, and environmental activism to create performances that ignite our imaginations and skillsets for enacting social change.

AFRICAAM 139: Black Geographies: An Orientation (ANTHRO 129B)

This introductory course examines racialization and antiblackness as spatial practices as well as the placemaking practices and sensibilities across and within Black communities throughout the Americas. Rather than focusing merely on where Black people live, this course explores the socio-political production of space and the ways Black subjectivity and Black social life imperatively produce a sense of place that often complicate traditional geographic rules. Putting into conversation key texts at the intersection of Anthropology, Human Geography, and Black Studies, we consider how space and place are bound up with contestations over citizenship, autonomy, environmental justice, and state violence - in addition to the alternative spatial imaginations produced therein - in rural and urban geographies across the Americas.
