JWST 333 - Comparative Diasporas

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, CD, WINT

This course is a comparative approach to diaspora theory and literature. The majority of the course will be a comparative approach to diasporic Jewish, Black, and South Asian cultural production. Through engagements with feminist and queer theory, we will explore modes of comparison, affiliation, and coalition between nonequivalent histories of gendered racialization, violence, colonialism, and oppression. We will end with an in-depth exploration of queer diaspora theory, which approaches queer diasporic communities and cultural production in opposition to the political logic of the nation.

Enrollment Limit: 15
