AFST 403 - TELLING LIVES: AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY VIA AUTOBIOGRAPHY
FORMERLY: SOSC 403. This course draws on African American Studies, women's studies, history, literature, and cultural studies. We will be examining African American autobiographies from 1890-1960 through the lenses of history and of literary analysis and cultural studies. There will be a common set of texts (autobiographies and historical texts). Each student, in addition, will lead a class discussion around either one of the assigned texts or a supplemental text drawing on relevant background material (including biographies, criticism, and historical material and developing a packet of additional readings for the class.) The class presentation will be accompanied by a substantial 15-20 page analytical research paper.
