How do you imagine a future that you were never meant to be in – and what is the power in doing so? This class explores Black and Indigenous speculative fiction from the nineteenth century to the present, reading novels, stories, films, and albums that deploy speculation as a vital tool for the liberatory imagination. Reading across advanced literary and cultural scholarship from the historicist to the highly theoretical, we will situate Black and Indigenous futurisms within the historical contexts of settler colonialism and the afterlives of slavery while also encountering cutting-edge work in Black studies, Indigenous studies, gender and sexuality studies, disability studies, and more.
