AFRICAAM 42: Clothing and Black Expressive Culture in African American History

This course will examine the long tradition of Black expressive culture through clothing practices. We will specifically focus on the material history of how clothing has been used to refashion and retain Black identities from slavery to the millennial era. More than simply clothing people, Black fashion and dress challenged proscribed race, sex, and gendered notions of self. In the course we will examine scholars whose research on Black sartorial practices centers the narratives of marginalized cultural workers, privileging their voices to illuminate the archive of images and objects. Whether of working-class upbringing, activist and political participants, Black bourgeoisie, or one who aspires to a particular lifestyle, African American clothing culture represents an instance of Black signifyin¿ (a spectrum of Black performance styles and expressive culture) that rewrites everyday sartorial practices to reimagine the Black subject.To do this we will apply concepts emerging out of Black performance theory and visual culture, history, and cultural studies.

AFRICAAM 44: Post-Civil Right Black America

This course will examine sites of cultural production and resistance of Black America in the post-civil rights era in the United States. It will introduce students to the rhetorical problems, constraints, and possibilities of contemporary Black America through analysis of historical and social trends. We will take a cultural studies approach to texts that emerged from Black struggles and contributions to American society. Though there will be attention given to roots of Black America before emancipation, our primary concern will be with 20th and 21st century African American life and culture. nnTo do this, we will draw from a broad range of scholarship and theory including African American history, studies in race and gender, performance theory, and visual and media studies. The texts we will read and screen are there to assist us in understanding how race and sex are produced and position Blacks within systems of inequality.

AFRICAAM 80Q: Race and Gender in Silicon Valley (CS 80Q)

Join us as we go behind the scenes of some of the big headlines about trouble in Silicon Valley. We'll start with the basic questions like who decides who gets to see themselves as "a computer person," and how do early childhood and educational experiences shape our perceptions of our relationship to technology? Then we'll see how those questions are fundamental to a wide variety of recent events from #metoo in tech companies, to the ways the under-representation of women and people of color in tech companies impacts the kinds of products that Silicon Valley brings to market. We'll see how data and the coming age of AI raise the stakes on these questions of identity and technology. How can we ensure that AI technology will help reduce bias in human decision-making in areas from marketing to criminal justice, rather than amplify it?
