The Radical Black Imagination:  Educative Possibilities, Transgression, and Freedom

Listed in: Black Studies, as BLST-446

Faculty

Dominique C. Hill (Section 01)

Description

[US] What relationships connect education, self-actualization, and transgressive acts?  How can body centric and Black feminist pedagogies help us (re)imagine education?  What insights and possibilities emerge from placing imagination, transgression, and education in conversation?  "The Radical Black Imagination" ruminates on these questions.  By studying texts and pedagogical practices of Black feminists, in particular, this course endeavors to illuminate under-explored pathways of freedom and transgression as educative tools.

The course entails class discussion, engagement with artistic mediums, translation of traditional texts into creative and transgressive terms, as well as opportunities to put the pedagogical theories covered in the course into practice.  The course will culminate with a collective public presentation.
