BK 600 Senior Seminar (Spring: 3)
BK 110 Introduction to the African Diaspora
Department permission required
This course explores the discourses of diaspora by taking into account the
origins, various meanings, multiple dimensions, cultural iterations, and
restrictive limitations of the term. How does "the practice of diaspora"
translate in different forms of cultural work such as music, film and literature?
How has diaspora shifted in the age of globalization? How can we use diaspora
as an analytical tool for reading from a critical perspective? We will consider
closely how diaspora is theorized, practiced, and represented in various
forms of cultural production. Therefore we will be taking an interdisciplinary
approach reading across genre, medium, and disciplines.
