Often interpreted as witchcraft, superstition, or paganism, African diaspora religions remain some of the most misunderstood traditions in the Americas. Although social scientists, philosophers, literary studies scholars, historians and religionists have contributed to the transdisciplinary theoretical and methodological foundation of the field, the traditions persist as an understudied element within larger religious studies discourse. In this course, we will explore the contributions of scholars and artists who engage African diaspora religions in their work through multiple conceptual approaches. The course focus includes topics such as ritual and material culture, corporeality and aesthetics, cosmology and philosophy, and decolonization and sovereignty within the traditions. Students can expect to gain an understanding of Kongo, Vodun, and Yoruba-based traditions across the Americas and the Caribbean as well as U.S. conjure culture.
