AFRS 383 - Transnational Solidarities:Palestinian Struggle for Self-Determinatione/Black Struggle for Liberation

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
In this course, we think through and interrogate the Prison Industrial Complex as a global system. We also examine state carceral policies and practices within the US and Israel/Palestine, regional and transnational prison abolition movements, “Jim Crow” technologies, and the notion of reciprocal transnational solidarities. We respond to the following questions: Is it a correct move on the part of Black leaders in the US to draw comparisons between the Jim Crow practices of the US past and the state practices impacting the Palestinian present? Assuming that the Prison Industrial Complex operates both locally and globally, how might we map its proliferation and evidence its impact? How might we define reciprocal solidarities, within the context of global prison abolition movements, and what might such solidarities look like? How do carceral policies and practices function discursively and materially? Mr. Moore.

Prerequisite: open to Juniors and Seniors only.
