AAS Course Descriptions
AAS 179 / African American History to 1865 (Winter 2024; Summer 2024)
How do anthropologists learn about people and the worlds in which they live when they can’t talk with those people or observe their day-to-day activities? Archaeology is the sub-discipline of anthropology that explores what it means to be human by examining the material things that people made, modified, and left behind. Students in this course will learn to explain how archaeologists use the material remains of human activities to understand past human relationships, behaviors, and beliefs. Simultaneously, they will grow to appreciate how interpretations and presentations of the past affect people living today. Crossslisted with HIS 179.
AAS 252 / Gender, Race, & Cultural Production (Winter 2024; Summer 2024)
This course provides an overview of the various performance genre made popular in the late nineteenth-early twentieth century by African Americans. The course will make explicit connections between black diasporic cultural production and intellectualism during the period known as the Harlem Renaissance. Crosslisted with WGS 252.
AAS 282 / History of Race Relations in the US (Spring 2024)
A socio-historical examination of race as a category in the United States. The course approaches the United States as a multiracial society and discusses how the various racial groups negotiate their differences politically, economically, intellectually, socially, and culturally. Crosslisted with HIS 190.
AAS 324 / Racial and Ethnic Identity Development (Spring 2024)
Drawing from an interdisciplinary framework (psychology, education, sociology, philosophy, etc.), this course is designed to introduce students to theory and research on racial and ethnic identity development across the life span. We will also explore immigrant, mixed-race, and bicultural identity development. We will spend a considerable amount of time in understanding, dissecting, and extending the theories and methodologies employed in the study of racial and ethnic identity. Crosslisted with PSY 324.
AAS 338 / African Literature (Summer 2024)
This course focuses on literature produced in Africa from the era of European imperialism through the present. LIT/AAS 338 will focus on specific topics, regions, nations, or traditions within African literature. This course will survey African writings in English against a backdrop of colonialism, neocolonialism, and globalization. Crosslisted with LIT 338.
AAS 353 / Advanced Criminology: Race & Crime (Winter 2024; Spring 2024; Summer 2024)
A critical examination of the correlation between race and crime in America. The course will focus on four major areas: race and the law, race and criminological theory, race and violent crime, and myths and facts about race and crime. Through critical examination of readings and official statistics, students will come to understand the complexity of the relationship between race and crime within the American Criminal Justice System and broader social context. Crosslisted with CRI 352.
AAS 373 / Slavery and Black Womanhood (Spring 2024)
Harriet Jacobs laments in her 1861 slave narrative Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl that ¿Slavery is terrible for men; but it is far more terrible for women.¿ Enslaved women in early and antebellum America not only endured the legal classification of being chattel property, but also the legal vulnerability of being sexual objects. The everyday sexual violation of black women by slaveholders, overseers, and others, not only tested legal definitions of sexual assault and rape, but also shaped the lives of enslaved women. Using primary source materials, biographies, monographs, and small group discussion, students will examine the challenges that enslaved black women faced in the late eighteenth century and the nineteenth century. Specifically, this course will focus on unpaid labor, rape, exclusion from first-wave feminism, resistance, incarceration, and reproduction as core experiences of black girlhood and womanhood. Crosslisted with HIS 373 and WGS 363.
AAS 378 / African American Literature 1920-1980 (Spring 2024)
A study of literature in the African American tradition, focusing on the realist and naturalist writings of this period, as well as the prose, poetry, essays and speeches of the Harlem Renaissance and Black Arts Movement. We will interrogate how the social matrices of competing definitions of black identity are reflected in and through writing produced by African Americans, while we trouble notions of authenticity, representation, and essentialism. The course will also explore the canon of African American Literature, its literary traditions, and the intersections with and diversions from the canon of American Letters. Crosslisted with LIT 378.
