HIS 395 - Black Women, Gender, and Black Transnationalism (3)

This seminar examines complex dynamics of Black transnationalism by focusing on the global visions; transnational activities; and transracial political alliances of African descendant peoples within the diaspora. While the course highlights key writings, speeches, and transoceanic travels of a diverse group of men and women, it also repositions Black women from the periphery to the center of the history of Black transnationalism. Additionally, this seminar seeks to examine various expressions and interpretations of Black transnationalism within the United States and globally from the eighteenth century to the Civil Rights and Black Power movements of the late twentieth century. As we move through the course we will engage two key questions: first how was Black women’s engagement in transnationalism similar to or different from that of their male counterparts?; and second to what degree did Black women integrate transnationalism with issues connected to women’s rights and/or feminist political concerns?
