AFRO FUTURE FEMALES
Component: Lecture
This course focuses on visual, literary, and sonic representations of black womanhood of the 20th and 21st centuries in the context of black woman-authored speculative fiction and discourses of futurity. Through closely looking at and listening to visual, literary, and sonic texts by black women, we will consider social constructions of race, gender, and sexuality; the significance of self-fashioning; and notions of community and belonging.
