GEOG195 HM - Geographies of Solidarity

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Seitz

Offered: Fall, alternating years

Description: Frequently gestured to, scrutinized, and debated, the promise of solidarity among (differently) marginalized, oppressed, and exploited people has long and contested histories in progressive social movements challenging inequalities of race, class, gender, and sexuality. This course stems from the wager that debates over solidarity become most productive and informative when solidarity is both theorized and contextualized. This course follows geographer Ruth Wilson Gilmore’s insight that freedom is a place to examine solidarity as a place. What are the historical, geographical, political-economic, and affective conditions under which solidarities become possible and are enacted?

HSA Course Area(s): American Studies; Geography
