HIST179 PO - Histories of Black Europe

When Offered: Offered alternate years; next offered spring 2021.
Instructor(s): P. Chu
Credit: 1

This course explores the history of the African diaspora in Europe since the fifteenth century. From the arrival of elite and enslaved Africans in the early modern period to the migration of students and workers in the colonial and post-colonial eras, Black people have established a longstanding presence in Europe. Our course focuses on the lived experiences of Black Europeans and the ways they shaped Europe’s political, social, and cultural history as they confronted racial discrimination and fought for liberation and citizenship. We examine the evolution of racial thinking and changing meanings of Blackness, Black women’s and worker’s movements, and Black internationalism, paying attention to the diversity of Black experiences across Europe.
