HUM 594: Readings and Resources

You will find below the course syllabus and other related materials under "Course Materials," along with the readings for each of our meetings under the various "Course Readings" files.

For the first assignment, we have given you the option of adding a reading drawn of your own to the course bibliography.  If you would like to do so, please click on "Add File" and attach the PDF, adding a brief file description.  Once you have done so, click on "Move to" and move the PDF to the "Course Bibliography" drawer of this "filing cabinet."

You should feel free, of course, to add additional materials to the course bibliography at any time.  If you have technical problems, please note them through the comments box below.  We should be able to trouble-shoot there.

This is an article from the Chicago Tribune about Barbara Ransby, a professor of history & African American studies at UIC, who I met through activist work back in Chicago. The article is quite brief & superficial (I can say more about her work during session). But I think Barbara a is a great example of how to combine academia & activism, albeit in slightly different ways than described in the readings for this week.  Sep 26, 2013, 6:29 PM Katja Schatte
