BCULST 570 Prisons, Politics, and Activism
Th 5:45 - 10 pm, Seattle Campus, Berger

This class will examine what scholars call "the carceral state" through history, critical theory, memoirs, and community-based learning. We will examine the politics and culture of imprisonment around the country but focus class research projects on Washington State and the north Puget Sound area. Students will complete projects about the history and lived reality of the carceral state in Washington, with the goal of contributing to a public scholarship on the topic. 

BCULST 593A Topics in Cultural Studies: Writing the Americas
W 5:45 - 10 pm, Dowling

"Writing the Americas" draws upon the insights of two related fields of study, Indigenous studies and settler colonial studies, in order to consider two foundational and related cultural inventions: the invention of "America" and the invention of the "Indian." Considering a variety of theoretical, filmix, fictional, poetic, and artistic texts, we will examine the role that writing plays and has played in developing, normalizing, and disrupting the concepts of "America" and of the "Indian."

BCULST 593B Topics in Cultural Studies: Black Arts West
M 5:45 - 10 pm, Murr

"Black Arts West" explores what theorist and poet Fred Moten calls the "autonomous aesthetic thrust of Black radicalism" as it has taken shape in multiple formations on the West Coast from the 1960s to the present. We will work to interrogate the narrative of Seattle as an exception to the fraught racial and racist dynamics of the United States as a whole and to situate Seattle-specific Black art and politics in relation to the rest of the West Coast.
