AFR 345 - Black Queer Theories


This course will familiarize students with key texts and debates within the field of Black Queer Studies from various theoretical, literary, historical, and multi-media perspectives. As a driving question, this course asks: What is the relationship between Blackness and queerness? How have Black people theorized the two? Where do Black queer theories happen, and who gets recognized as producing them? How do we recover Black queer history?
