Taught By: Mia White
Section: A

CRN: 15883

Credits: 4

This course assumes the importance of Blackness to the geographical and environmental imagination. “Black Geographies” refers both to the ways that geography can be used to understand the complex, overlapping spatialities of black life and the stretching of geographical knowledge that takes place when scholars consciously center questions of race and blackness. In this course, we will think about landscape, nature, ecology and space through a Black geographic framework, with particular attention paid to the ways in which scholars, poets, activists, novelists and other artists employ the concept of “poetics” to explore ideas about inequality, resistance and liberation. Thus, Black space-making will be engaged across several disciplines, with the goal of providing students with a multi-disciplinary introduction to the burgeoning canon in Black geography.
