GLOA 400 - 002: Pan-African Identities: African Perspectives

04:30 PM to 07:10 PM W

Innovation Hall 136

Instructor: Jonathon Repinecz

In reaction to the slave trade, generations of black intellectuals have tried to invent and foster forms of solidarity between Africa and its diaspora. What has become of the Pan-African imagination today? We will explore several possible answers to this question that have emerged on the African continent. Our journey will take us through an overview of historical Pan-African movements to contemporary concerns such as international terrorism and mass migration. Our objects of study may include texts, films, and pop culture from Senegal, Mali, Djibouti, and/or South Africa, via the Marvel blockbuster Black Panther.
