FYSP 115 - Literature of Atlantic Slavery

4SS, WRi, CD
First Semester.  This course examines explorations of Atlantic slavery by African and African Diasporic writers.  Students will be exposed to several responses to the circumstances of Western chattel slavery through slave narratives, poetry, novels, essays and film, including those of people who lived as slaves and those who attempt to re-imagine enslavement for a 21st century audience.  We will discuss issues of gender, nationality, race, sexuality, and the politics of abolition.  Authors discussed will include Toni Morrison, Sherley Ann Williams, Fred D’Aguiar and Esteban Montejo.
