Accepting Applications: Fall 2015 AI for COLL-C103 Race, Love, Conquest course

Deadline:  next Monday, March 30, 2015

 

About the position: The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies is seeking applicants for Associate Instructor / Grader for the Fall 2015 course, “Race, Love, Conquest.” 20 hours/wk.

About the course: The course lecture will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:30-3:45pm and the discussion on Tuesdays from 5:45-7:45pm.

Course Abstract: What is Love?  How does love relate to adventure, travel, and politics?  We often say that love “conquers all” thus we ask how is love used as a story to justify conquest and colonization in the Americas but also generally anywhere?  In this class, we explore how “love” especially transgressive love across races, classes and cultures, or between same sex is written up and told in myths and histories that have fundamentally created and shaped our identities as “Americans” specifically, and as the proper descendants and inheritors of Western Civilization.   In other words, we explore love as an ideology used to explain and legitimate political domination or conquest in historical situations of colonialism or inter-racial conflict.  This course destabilizes our popular assumptions about “whiteness” through an interrogation of how “otherness” has been envisioned and fabricated by European racial politics beginning with the discovery of the Americas.  By exploring cannibalism, noble savage, and myths about the conquest of the Americas, this course presents an alternative approach to understanding the history to Western Civilization and to American society and culture through an exploration of love.

 

Please contact me with any questions. Thank you!
All best,
