AFC 540 - Contemporary African Womanhood


The course explores the myriad variations in African women’s experience as well as their theoretical underpinnings through their portrayals in autobiography, fictional literature, film and social media. Students will consider the political, racial, social and economic contexts in which African women self-depict and are represented through the lens of their located lives in Africa and in the diaspora both in the present and in an imagined time. Through intensive writing workshops toward the course’s end, students will have the opportunity to produce a potentially publishable research paper.
