AAST 382 - Seminar: James Baldwin

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course will examine the works and life of James Baldwin, a major Black and Queer writer and activist who wrote across many genres, including essays, fiction, and drama. From the mid-20th century, his singular work had a major impact nationally and globally. Students in this class will read selected works and watch relevant films, and will do individual research resulting in a major public presentation at the end of the semester to enlighten our larger community about the impact of his work. As an upper-level seminar, the workload will be demanding. Preference given to upperclass majors in Africana studies and related fields.
