Department Section Description: 

What is “Black marxism”: How does such a perspective define “marxism,” and what makes Black radicalism different? How does the latter define, and how is it defined by, Blackness? How are the limits of the Black radical tradition defined against marxism? This course explores these inquiries with studies in Cedric Robinson’s influential work, Black Marxism: The Making of the Black Radical Tradition (1983), as well as readings of relevant literature and film that incorporate Third world, feminist, and queer perspectives.
