African American Women’s History WGS361/HIS365/AAS376: Professor Ann Marie Nicolosi
Satisfies Social Changes in Historical Perspective, Gender, Race and Ethnicity Requirements
In this course we will combine classroom instruction with archival research to explore the experiences of African American women in the New Orleans area specifically and in the South generally. New Orleans provides a unique perspective to study African American Women’s history as it was the location of both free and slave communities. In addition to classroom and archival work, we will explore the worlds of African American women with experiences such as plantation, museum and city tours.
Global Women Writers WGS376/LIT316: Professor Mary Lynn Hopps
Satisfies Literary, Visual and Performing Arts, Gender and Global Requirements
In this course we will examine the literary expression of global women writers as a means of interrogating the roles of women as colonial and post-colonial subjects through the lens of feminist and post-colonial theory. Primarily we will focus on the stories of enslaved women and les femmes de couleur libres,on the lives and conditions of those transported from Haiti and Africa. We will conduct research in the archives at Tulane University and visit sites in and around New Orleans that reflect the convergence of multiple cultures.
