PHL 110 - Black and Indigenous Philosophies of the Americas (4 Cr.)


The contemporary Americas are founded on the twin legacies of the transatlanc slave trade and the genocide of Indigenous peoples. Powerful philosophical and activist traditions have emerged in response to the continued forces of anti-blackness and settler-colonialism to think about resistance, joy, mourning, and futures. This course surveys the history of these literatures and brings them into the contemporary moment to think about ongoing struggles for liberaon. Possible thinkers covered include: Vine Deloria, Jr., W.E.B. Du Bois, Frantz Fanon,Saidiya Hartman, C.L.R. James, Winona Laduke, Audra Simpson, Hortense Spillers, and Haunani-Kay Trask. Spring semester. Kimoto.
