Instructor: Saleh-Hanna, Viviane
In this course we will locate the Racist-Imperialist-Patriarchal [R.I.P.] foundations upon which contemporary society constructs and institutes criminal justice. We will focus on the evolution of historical forms of confinement through chattel slavery, apartheid, reservations and colonial wars into contemporary systems of imprisonment and punishment in criminal justice. We will read Octavia Butler’s Kindred and Toni Morrison’s Beloved as meta-slave narratives, as ideological frameworks that introduce you to the concept of Black Feminist Hauntology – a sociological study of the ghosts that haunt contemporary life, the skeletons in this nation’s closets. We will explore the literature that has dealt with this topic in reference to these novels as well as the literature that addresses the larger haunted settings of this land, its victims, oppressors and survivors.
This course fulfills the GS (Gender Studies) and PJP (Politics, Justice, and Policy) WGS concentrations.
