To Be A Problem: An Online Course in Radical Literature Making
Welcome! This is the online home of a course entitled To Be A Problem: Outcast Subjectivity and Black Literary Production.
As Audre Lorde, June Jordan and Fred Moten teach us, all knowledge belongs to the people. This is an effort to steal the force out of mechanisms through which the private University privileges itself as a site of "knowledge production". Since we all know that learning happens everywhere this FREE online version of a course that will be taught this fall at Duke University invites you to participate in an interactive process of reading and creating. Look for bi-weekly posts on the materials listed and weekly writing assignments. Please read and write along with us. (Take advantage of this opportunity to havethe infinitely-divided attention of a queerblackradical nerd for three months!)
If you'd like to participate please send your email address and a sentence about your intention to firstname.lastname@example.org.
