CRES 190C The Black Transnational

Senior seminar focusing on the transnational circulation of Black political and cultural thought and practice in the 20th century. Explores the dynamics of Black transnational circulations beyond (and often in spite of) imposed national and international borders that have historically and continue presently to dictate, criminalize, or otherwise obstruct or limit the free movement of Black peoples. Aims to permit students to trace the multidirectional, radical imaginary of such Black diasporic circulations, cataloguing the possibilities that Black transnational political and cultural thought and practice engendered alongside the differences and contestations these formations might reveal.
