Notes
The course will be a comparative examination of racialized gendered violence. Specifically, we will examine how violence personally and systemically impacts Black women's lives. The use of the term "Black" is meant to be inclusive of a global Blackness, not just American concepts. To this point, Black women suffer violence at unprecedented rates in comparison to their white counterparts. The instances of violence are varied and are physical and psychological. We will explore the multiple ways that Black women encounter/suffer violence through the criminal justice system, educationally, economically, and culturally. We will also explore the varied representations of Black women as the perpetrators of violence and analyze the notion of whether or not women can achieve empowerment by use of violence. The first two weeks will be online; the last two weeks will meet face to face.
