(CRN25726)
 
K Hour (T/Th 2:30-3:50 pm)

This course will consider the conceptual/theoretical contributions of Frantz Fanon and Hortense Spillers, as frames for reading some iconic texts in the black literary canon. Central to our study will be an exploration of blackness, subjection, and gendering—as well as thinking about how these idioms relate to the genre conventions of our course's literary works. Enrollment limited to 20 juniors and seniors. Instructor permission required.  DIAP
