HIST 2096 Intellectual History in Black & White
Monday and Wednesday: 2:55-4:10
Dr. Ian Merkel
Together we will work with thinkers such as Sigmund Freud, Rosa Luxemburg, Walter Rodney, Frantz Fanon, and lesser known Brazilian authors. We will discuss psychoanalysis, Marxism, anticolonial politics, and racial inclusion, constantly drawing texts and social contexts into dialogue. Ultimately students' final research papers will address a given intellectual, work, movement, or concept.
