AAS 3245 - Slavery in the Contemporary Literary Imagination

This course will examine the work of African American authors whose work forms a subgenre of African American letters sometimes called the neo-slave narrative, concerned to explore and expand the historical and creative representation of slavery in the US and the UK. We will explore the limits of literary forms, racial (mis)representation and the historical records that have yielded this compelling production of writing in the past 30 years.
