AADS 1108 African and African Diaspora Literature (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

By studying creative writing by African writers and writers of African descent, this course examines how diasporic Africans created viable lives for themselves in the "New World." Questions that define this study include: how were Africans in the diaspora able to negotiate the complex social, political, and cultural spaces they encountered? What ancestral traces have they retained and how do these traces co-exist within New World realities?
