Narratives of Passing

Africana Studies 345 or Comparative American Studies 345

Usual Description

Is passing about pretending to be someone you are not, or is it about becoming someone different than you were before? This course uses passing as a paradigm to destabilize normative understandings of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexuality. Through literature and film about various forms of passing from the early 20th century through the present, we will analyze relationships between privilege and oppression, representation and performance, normativity and difference, and visible and invisible identities.
