Topic Course Title

Making Knowledge

Topic Course Description

This course examines the past, present, and possible future of the practice of making knowledge, especially knowledge about human identities, communities, and lifeways. Inquiry into these topics in the modern period, which developed in the context of Euro-American colonial power structures and cultural encounters, continues to shape disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches in the humanities and social sciences. The course engages with such methods both constructively and critically—both as necessary tools for making knowledge and as tools that often depend upon and reproduce racialized power structures and forms of exploitation. It also looks beyond academic methods, exploring how alternative forms of knowledge creation (such as the cultivation of embodied experiences), especially as practiced in marginalized communities, might offer important correctives to disciplinary norms.
