    AFAS 218 – Introduction to Hip-Hop Dance
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Arts
  • Honors Contract
  • This beginning level hip- hop dance class combines straight lectures, lively discussions and problem solving with actual movement practice with the objective of equipping students the relevant cultural, historical and practical knowledge of hip-hop dance and cultures in general. This course takes off from the premise that hip-hop dance is a vital component of wider hip-hop cultures which contain both global and sub-national constituents. As such, it adopts a historical approach to explore the beginnings, influences and parallels of hip-hop dance in continental African, Caribbean, Latin American and local US cultures. The course proceeds to examine the different hip-hop dance and movement styles, techniques, vocabulary and cultures emanating from particular geographic regions especially the East Coast, West Coast, Midwest and the Deep South in the USA as well as hip-hop dance's current state of global popularity, cross-cultural appeal, production and consumption. The ultimate objective is to challenge and encourage students to create final dance projects where they apply knowledge acquired throughout the semester to demonstrate their understanding of the cultural, historical and practical knowledge of hip-hop dance and cultures in general. Most importantly, the course examines how hip-hop dance expressions and representations challenge and/or reinforce social constructs of race, gender, and class. As a combination lecture/studio class this course will focus on both theory and practice. Where possible the course will take advantage of Hip-Hop dancers and scholars residing in or visiting Arizona to deliver guest performances and workshop. Students are not required to have prior dance knowledge to enroll in this class and will participate at their ability levels. The class culminates in a research paper and an option to do a performance or a digital project.

    AFAS 304B – The Social Construction of Race: Blackness
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • In constructing this course, the recognition of Whiteness/Blackness is not solely a reactionary response to challenges from persons of color: it is also a reflection of the need to provide a narrative of Whiteness/Blackness that intends an understanding of the notion of Whiteness/Blackness as a racial category and the implications of this categorization and association. For example, naming Whiteness displaces it from the unmarked status that is itself an effect of dominance. Within the particular disciplines of Anthropology and Ethnic Studies, Whiteness, Blackness and Race have come to be earnest subjects of Study. Being White or Black in the 21st Century, however, is far from straightforward. It is riddled with ambiguity and marked by a general sense of racial angst as to what it means to be White or Black. This course will attempt to respond to the question: what does it mean to be Black/White in our global climate?

    AFAS 305 – The Birth of The Cool
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies

It is, according to linguistic anthropologist Robert L. Moore, the most popular slang term of approval in English. "Cool" more than a word. This course investigates the idea of "cool" in America and its musical relationship to urban culture through various genres of African-­American music. The rise to prominence of "cool" will be analyzed through and investigation of the music of Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, West Coast jazz, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane, Iggy Pop, The Ramones, Sugar Hill Gang, and Grandmaster Flash along with their music's effect on social mores, fashion, film, and literature.

  • In order to conceptualize the way gender and ethnicity has shaped women's lives in the public and private domain students will "hear" the voices of African American women in ethnography, history and literature as we discuss the Africana concepts of life, health, beauty and family. The experiences of these women, as expressed in literature have become "formidable" presences in African American culture and history. The self-expression and self-definition, expressed by African American women's voices have generated social and political changes in American history that have also impacted the dominant Euro-American culture of American society.

    AFAS 376 – Global Soccer
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This interdisciplinary course is about the emergence and growing notoriety of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and the rest of the planet. While the British invented "football" (as soccer is known around the world) and professional football, the French were key players in structuring it worldwide. Following in the steps of Pierre de Coubertin who revived the Olympic Games at the end of the 19th century, French compatriots Jules Rimet, Robert Guérin, Henri Delaunay, Jacques de Ryswick, Gabriel Hanot, Jacques Goddet, and Jacques Ferran were central figures in the creation of the most important soccer institutions as of today: Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in 1904, the FIFA World Cup Soccer in 1930, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) in 1954, the UEFA Coupe d'Europe des Clubs Champions Européens (Champions League) in 1955, and the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball Award) in 1956. The course provides a strong foundation in the history and development of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and as a worldwide global phenomenon through explorations in the following areas: cultural and global studies, philosophy, history, institutions, the arts, and language. The course presents several important themes that will allow us to understand the popularity and identification of the populations with soccer worldwide, as well as the human values it represents: olympism, pacifism, imperialism, colonialism, national identities, race, politics, gender, and globalization. Students will read and discuss some of the most important scholarly texts dealing with soccer.

  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Humanities
  • Honors Contract
  • Digital Africana Studies aims to bridge the best of Africana Studies (key concepts, theories, methods of inquiry, and pedagogies) with the democratic potential of Digital Humanities. Digital Africana Studies examines and re-imagines possibilities for the practices and structural logics of Digital Humanities and digital media broadly by questioning the often taken-for-granted assumptions of Digital Humanities spaces, discourses and cultural productions. To the degree that Africana Studies has long advocated for the inclusion of African American contributions and the documenting of historical racial struggles for diversity and social justice, Digital Africana Studies encourages critical yet productive engagements through literature, art, history and popular culture.

    AFAS 304A – The Social Construction of Race: Whiteness
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Pass/Fail Option
  • Honors Contract
  • In constructing this course, the recognition of Whiteness/Blackness is not solely a reactionary response to challenges from persons of color; it is also a reflection of the need to provide a narrative of Whiteness/Blackness that intends an understanding of the notion of Whiteness/Blackness as a racial category and the implications of this categorization and association. For example, naming Whiteness displaced it from the unmarked, and unnamed status that is itself an effect of dominance. Within the particular disciplines of Anthropology and Ethnic Studies, Whiteness, Blackness and Race have come to be earnest subjects of study. Being White or Black in the 21st Century, however, is far from straightforward. It is riddled with ambiguity and marked by a general sense of racial angst as to what it means to be White or Black. This course will attempt to respond to the question: What does it mean to be Black/White in our global climate?

    AFAS 306 – African-American Autobiographies: Women and Their Histories
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Students will gain insight into the historical and cultural factors that have created, and continue to perpetuate gender and ethnic inequity. Students will come to understand African American writers, particularly women, as historical agents and self-defined individuals. While the course will emphasize the multiple roles of African American women, as portrayed autobiographically it also incorporates the historical struggles of those around them. It is my goal that through the course material students will see how African Americans are constantly recreating themselves in the face of adversity.

The experiences of these women, as expressed in literature have become "formidable" presences in African American culture and history. The self-expression and self-definition, expressed by African American women's voices have generated social and political changes in American history that have also impacted the dominant Euro-American culture of American society.

    AFAS 376 – Global Soccer
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This interdisciplinary course is about the emergence and growing notoriety of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and the rest of the planet. While the British invented "football" (as soccer is known around the world) and professional football, the French were key players in structuring it worldwide. Following in the steps of Pierre de Coubertin who revived the Olympic Games at the end of the 19th century, French compatriots Jules Rimet, Robert Guérin, Henri Delaunay, Jacques de Ryswick, Gabriel Hanot, Jacques Goddet, and Jacques Ferran were central figures in the creation of the most important soccer institutions as of today: Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in 1904, the FIFA World Cup Soccer in 1930, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) in 1954, the UEFA Coupe d'Europe des Clubs Champions Européens (Champions League) in 1955, and the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball Award) in 1956. The course provides a strong foundation in the history and development of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and as a worldwide global phenomenon through explorations in the following areas: cultural and global studies, philosophy, history, institutions, the arts, and language. The course presents several important themes that will allow us to understand the popularity and identification of the populations with soccer worldwide, as well as the human values it represents: olympism, pacifism, imperialism, colonialism, national identities, race, politics, gender, and globalization. Students will read and discuss some of the most important scholarly texts dealing with soccer.

However, courses taught in the era of African enslavement have tended to focus on the northern most regions, such as Virginia, which are often taken to represent-if not constitute-the South. This course looks at the other "South" and the French and Spanish colonizers of South Carolina, Florida, and Louisiana. It offers a different perspective of the beginnings of the Great Enslavement and compares and contrasts the lives and struggles of enslaved, freed, and self-emancipated Africans in the Southwest during the tenure of Spain.

    AFAS 304B – The Social Construction of Race: Blackness
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • In constructing this course, the recognition of Whiteness/Blackness is not solely a reactionary response to challenges from persons of color: it is also a reflection of the need to provide a narrative of Whiteness/Blackness that intends an understanding of the notion of Whiteness/Blackness as a racial category and the implications of this categorization and association. For example, naming Whiteness displaces it from the unmarked status that is itself an effect of dominance. Within the particular disciplines of Anthropology and Ethnic Studies, Whiteness, Blackness and Race have come to be earnest subjects of Study. Being White or Black in the 21st Century, however, is far from straightforward. It is riddled with ambiguity and marked by a general sense of racial angst as to what it means to be White or Black. This course will attempt to respond to the question: what does it mean to be Black/White in our global climate?

    AFAS 306 – African-American Autobiographies: Women and Their Histories
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Students will gain insight into the historical and cultural factors that have created, and continue to perpetuate gender and ethnic inequity. Students will come to understand African American writers, particularly women, as historical agents and self-defined individuals. While the course will emphasize the multiple roles of African American women, as portrayed autobiographically it also incorporates the historical struggles of those around them. It is my goal that through the course material students will see how African Americans are constantly recreating themselves in the face of adversity.

The experiences of these women, as expressed in literature have become "formidable" presences in African American culture and history. The self-expression and self-definition, expressed by African American women's voices have generated social and political changes in American history that have also impacted the dominant Euro-American culture of American society.

    AFAS 376 – Global Soccer
  • Cross Listed
  • Gen Ed Diversity Emphasis
  • Tier 2 Individuals & Societies
  • Honors Contract
  • This interdisciplinary course is about the emergence and growing notoriety of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and the rest of the planet. While the British invented "football" (as soccer is known around the world) and professional football, the French were key players in structuring it worldwide. Following in the steps of Pierre de Coubertin who revived the Olympic Games at the end of the 19th century, French compatriots Jules Rimet, Robert Guérin, Henri Delaunay, Jacques de Ryswick, Gabriel Hanot, Jacques Goddet, and Jacques Ferran were central figures in the creation of the most important soccer institutions as of today: Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) in 1904, the FIFA World Cup Soccer in 1930, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) in 1954, the UEFA Coupe d'Europe des Clubs Champions Européens (Champions League) in 1955, and the Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball Award) in 1956. The course provides a strong foundation in the history and development of soccer in France, the Francophone world, and as a worldwide global phenomenon through explorations in the following areas: cultural and global studies, philosophy, history, institutions, the arts, and language. The course presents several important themes that will allow us to understand the popularity and identification of the populations with soccer worldwide, as well as the human values it represents: olympism, pacifism, imperialism, colonialism, national identities, race, politics, gender, and globalization. Students will read and discuss some of the most important scholarly texts dealing with soccer.
