BLACK IS THE JOURNEY: sampling the intellectual and artistic productions of the African Diaspora (CSL2133.01)

Maboula Soumahoro

The course offers a rhizomatic exploration of the African diaspora of the Black Atlantic (Europe-Africa-America), encompassing a wide array of the modalities of its expressions: historical, political, cultural, artistic, and intellectual.

Using my book “Black is the Journey, Africana the Name” (Polity, 2021) as a point of departure, this seminar is an invitation to embark on a series of peregrinations in an attempt to capture the elusive, numerous, and intricate layers of blackness that have manifested throughout history and geography. Conducted in English.
