An Introduction: Introduction to African American Studies at the University of Kentucky
Greetings, AAS 200.
This course establishes the intellectual context for an examination of the African-American experience; it introduces students to the various approaches scholars use to analyze that experience. This course employs a topical framework which permits focus on issues reflecting the diversity and richness of African-American experience across geographic boundaries.
As we will discuss in class, this course will challenge the student to learn in physical and digital environments. We are going to be using an anthology entitled: The African-American Odyssey, Combined Volume (5th Edition) by Darlene Clark Hine, William C. Hine, and Stanley C Harrold in addition to blogs, videos, streamed lectures, archives, open access institutional resources, other books and websites.
If you would like to contact me, I can be reached using the information on the syllabus or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. I am excited to learn with you!
