LITR 344 Slave Narrative as Documentary


Course examines literary and cinematic traditions in which slave narratives and African-American documentary film share rhetorical, artistic and political purposes. Course demonstrates how slave narratives and documentary film functioned at the forefronts of the 20th century socio-cultural activism for the redress of inequalities. Through written text and cinema-graphic arguments, the course explores how slave narratives served as analogs to American literary conventions and how documentary films continue to inform popular and critical literary texts and images. This course is a critical research course that informs and supports the goals and objectives of Writing & Rhetoric I and II foundational courses within the English Department.
