Additional Course Details: 

The history of slavery is a history of gender.  Children of enslaved mothers inherited their mother's slave status.  In a world where social class and wealth was typically inherited through the father, the architects of slavery decided to turn everything on its head.  Why? In this class, we will interrogate the intersection of sex, slavery and gender in the Americas. We will explore how race itself was constructed through the gendered dynamics of slavery.  We will also examine traumatic histories of sexual violence alongside examples of empowerment and resistance.
