ENAM 4840 - Fictions of Black Identity


This class will examine novels, essays, critical works that address the meanings of blackness in an American context. We will explore the notion that Black identity is a fiction, not necessarily in the sense of falsity, but in its highly mediated, flexible, and variable condition. Among the questions to consider: how does one make and measure Black identity? What is the value of racial masquerade? For more details on this class, please visit the department website at http://www.engl.virginia.edu/courses. Prerequisite: third year, fourth year, AAS or English major or minor.
