(Formerly LITR 320) The course will examine literary and critical writings of the African Diaspora. We will study major writers of Africa, North America, and the Caribbean, such as W.E.B. DuBois, Leopold Sedar Senghor, Aime Cesaire, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, Amiri Baraka, James Baldwin, Henry Louis Gates, Maryse Conde, Adrienne Kennedy, and others, representative of the literary movements and critical concepts of Negritude, the Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts Movement. While offering crucial insights into the dynamics of modern and contemporary criticism, the post-colonial vision of these writers traces a quest for new identities.
