Lernziele / Kompetenzen
  • Getting acquainted with important texts of contemporary philosophy
  • Understanding some central concepts and contexts of Black Studies
  • Assembling examples of black study in music, art and social life
InhalteOn the one hand, the course will try to elaborate an introduction to some of the most important texts of Black Studies. On the other hand, and beyond that, the concept of “black study” will be discussed as an anti-identitarian form of study beyond classical curricula and institutions. In the module, we will start from close readings of philosophical texts, but also listen to music, watch films and discuss art works along the lines of black study.
