Schooling Bodies, Schooling Blackness:  Pedagogies, Politics, and Possibilities

Listed in: Black Studies, as BLST-335

Moodle site: Course


Dominique C. Hill (Section 01)


[US] This course examines the interplay of Blackness, embodiment, and schooling. Conceptualizing schooling as a hierarchical organizing and socializing process, the course examines how schooling sculpts, appraises, and understands Black bodies, behavior, and performance of identity in and beyond formal educational spaces. Course participants examine distinctions between schooling and education as well as investigate the behind-the-scene politics of lived educational experiences. Framing the Black body as a contested and potential-filled site, the course also explores how different pedagogical forms can serve as interventions to schooling and expand possibilities for understanding and assigning meaning to Blackness, bodies, and Black embodiment.

Limited to 30 students. Fall semester. Professor Hill.

If Overenrolled: Priority will be given to Black Studies majors followed by students with a designed major that incorporates education.
