The Black Metropolis

Alain Patrice Nganang

Back to "Spring 2018" courses

This class will examine the cinema and literature of the Black Metropolis. The course will focus on the cinematographic production that presents Black lives in metropolises of the world, particularly in Paris, along with theoretical work and novels to help us define the concept more cogently. Focus on Black social upward mobility and migration, Black identity and self-expression. We will look at issues related to both representation and aesthetics, and at the ways through which a transnational Blackness impacts the general politics of cultural representation in the world.
