ANTHRO 107: Black Political Struggle Across the Americas (AFRICAAM 137)

This course orients students to the intersections between Anthropology and Black Studies through a survey of select ethnographic, historical, literary, and cinematographic materials based on Black political mobilizations across Latin America and the Caribbean. Organized by themes, the course pairs anthropological scholarship on Black political mobilizations against racialized violence and dispossession with critical Black Studies theoretical texts this scholarship is in conversation with. These pairings center what contemporary Black political struggle across the Americas teaches us about Black suffering, police terror, the problems of neoliberal multiculturalism, and the potential of transnational connections. Through case studies from Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Colombia, and Brazil, we ask: How have understanding the conditions of life of Black communities in the Americas contributed to and/or challenged broader theorizations of the State, violence, rights, and recognition? How do contemporary mobilizations and political imaginations of Black communities push the modern nation-state into crisis through demands for Black life? And how do these struggles theorize the time and space of the conditions of Black life through transnational politics?
