BLACK WRITING IN CANADA


This course offers advanced study of writing by authors of the Black Diaspora in Canada. Its focus and scope may vary by course offering, from multiple genres (e.g., theatre, fiction, poetry, documentary film) to a single mode (e.g., Afrofuturism, neo-slave narratives) to Black writing in a particular region (e.g., the Prairies, West Coast, East Coast, Toronto) or a particular historical period (e.g., 19th century, 21st century, 1960s to 1990s). Attentive to historical, literary historical, and other contexts, the course celebrates the aesthetics and artistry of Black writing in Canada and the knowledges it produces.
