This course draws on a broad range of texts (theoretical, literary, historical, ethnographic and performative) to examine the concepts of "gender" and "sexuality" within the African Diaspora. Significant to the conversation are questions of African Diasporic religious practices, belief systems and ontologies, which we will engage with throughout the course.
