OSPPARIS 94: Paris noir and the spaces of otherness

Paris and the African-American diaspora have been historically intertwined through political activism, literature, architecture, cinema, music, and beyond. In this course we will map the spatial presence of the avant-garde of African-American artists in Paris and how their being in the City of Light has inherently shaped the French Capital and its understanding of alterity throughout the twentieth and the twenty-first century. We will not only focus on the Parisian connections and the long-lasting imprint they left on Paris by othering the urban landscape, offering alternative conceptions of the parisian territories for generations of Black and non-Black artists to come, but also on their own journeys of self-discovering and intellectual awakening in the streets of Paris: how Paris transforms them and how they transform Paris.

From Richard Wright to Beyonc¿, from James Baldwin to Ta-Nehisi Coates, from Josephine Baker to Thomas Chatterton Williams, from Beverly Loraine Greene to Angela Davis & Black Lives Matter in Paris : exploring how the pioneers of the Afro-American parisian diaspora paved the way for the future generations of Paris noir. From Caf¿ Tournon to the Louvre museum, from Montparnasse to La Sorbonne, from the Unesco headquarters co-designed by Beverly Loraine Greene the First African-American woman to be a registered architect in the USA, we will explore the ways those parisian territories, symbols of power, knowledge and French (non) art de vivre came to define the socio-political Paris of Afro-American artists and public intellectuals, and to refine their intimate vision of America from a distance.
