BLACK GEOGRAPHIC THOUGHT
Black Geographies considers the concept of geography to examine multiple subjective orientations through engaging critical race, black feminist, diaspora and queer studies. Reading key text selections, the course will cover various approaches to the geographical categorization of blackness through two organizing frameworks. In the first, the ‘black geographic,’ ‘geography’ serves as a productive analytic for examining the lived experiences, conceptual limits, and theoretical purchase of blackness through the reading of some seminal and contemporary texts by black geographers. The second, ‘geographic blackness,’ considers how blackness as a modality of analysis, in turn, gives insight and shape to the discipline of geography through texts by non-geographers that engage or invoke geographic themes.
