Race and Memory in the Americas

AAAS 326S

This course confronts this relationship between memory and narrative and their role in addressing the trauma of colonization and the slave trade in its many iterations within Latino, Latin American and at times West African literature. Often pairing the readings with prominent UNESCO-sponsored memorials or other landmarks, this course endeavors to have students question how a transnational Americas remembers itself through narrative and memorialization, despite colonization, imperialism, neoliberalism, and heteronormative hegemonies.
