SOC 530

Blackness and Freedom

This course explores the impact of transatlantic slavery, dispossession and indentureship of Black diasporic peoples within and outside of Canada. It critically engages with themes of labour in the afterlife of slavery, the spatial and physical erasures of blackness, the surveillance and medicalization of Black bodies and blackness in white imagination. In "talking back" to systems of oppression, this course will also explore the politics of Black resistance that ultimately broaden horizons of Black freedom.
