LACS 384A - Hip Hop And Resistance

Binghamton / University Center | Summer 2020
July 6, 2020 — 
Students will explore the early roots of Hip Hop music in the U.S. in the context of growing counter-culture and resistance movements. Originating from Black, Latinx and Caribbean neighborhoods in New York City in the late 1970s/early1980s, Hip Hop was influenced by Latinx and Caribbean beats like bomba, disco, and poetry amidst local and global social and economic crises and an increasingly militarized police force. Among topics discussed in the class will be the relationship between Hip Hop, policing, the drug war, housing displacement, squatting, graffiti and the "right to the city." The course will also trace how Hip Hop has become a globalized expression of the Black, Latinx and Caribbean urban experience across the Americas.

WGSS 281B - Men And Masculinities

Binghamton / University Center | Summer 2020
July 6, 2020 — 
Only recently have the behavior and experiences of men, as men, come to the foreground in the social sciences. It is through the work of critical feminist scholars that "man" stopped being an unmarked, normative category. This course examines the diverse experiences of boys and men and the public discourse surrounding masculinities through various theories of masculinities. From this, this course will look at several different important questions: What is masculinity? How has masculinity varied across space and time? How does the gendered social order influence men's actions and the ways that men perceive their world? This course will take an intersectional perspective to explore gender through different dimensions of masculinity, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, nationality, age, gender identity, and sexuality.

WRIT 381M - Writing The Resistance

Binghamton / University Center | Summer 2020
July 6, 2020 — 
This course examines the role of writing in political activism and social movements. We will draw on texts by contemporary activists from Hong Kong to Standing Rock as well as their predecessors--abolitionists, pacifists, labor organizers, civil-rights leaders, and other--to consider the role of writing, rhetoric, and technologies of communication in both enabling and suppressing social movements. By studying these texts and testing out their compositional methods, students will develop a nuanced understanding of the language of activism: its practices and possibilities, its uses and failures, and its role shaping broader public discourses.
