ENG 385LEC Literature of the African Diaspora


This course studies the literary production of peoples of the African diaspora, examining transatlantic perspectives that enable comparison of black writers from places such as the Caribbean, England, and the United States. Moving across genres as varied as science fiction and graphic mystery novels, we will listen carefully to the sonic boom of rage, resistance and despair that echoes back and forth across the Atlantic. Ghosts, the mothers of murderers, and the children of slavery all speak their stories, asking us to walk a little of the way with them towards re-memory and perhaps, redemption.
