EDUC 3114 - BLACK EDUCATIONAL THOUGHT
The aim of this course is to engage Black education discourse critically, as a popular-cultural idea, and as an area of intellectual thought and scholarly study. Our course readings will include critical social and cultural theory drawing from such areas as Black feminisms, Black cultural studies, Afropessimisms, Critical Race Theory, Black literary studies, Black queer studies, Black education history and philosophy, and empirical analyses and policy studies related to Black educational opportunities, experiences and outcomes. Poetry, music, film and other arts forms will also serve as texts to help us in our attempt to more clearly articulate a critical Black studies in the field of education, and a critical engagement of education in Black studies.
