AFST 20010 - Sex, Race & Power in European Colonial

Course Credit: 1
Sex, Race, and Power in European u An interdisciplinary examination of the scholarly literature on processes of racialization and sexualization of black and brown bodies in European colonial territories, the colonial management and regulation of inter-racial intimacy, the production of colonial literature, etc. We analyze forms and categories of inter-racial sexual intimacy that took place in European colonial contexts between colonizers (usually white men) and colonized people (most of the time black and brown women) and its implications for power, power structures, and post-colonial power configurations. Most utilized cases and examples come from continental Africa. [AH, C, HSS]
