This blog accompanies the Afro-Futurisms in African American Literature course at the University of Kentucky (DaMaris Hill and Nathan Moore). The course is designed to be a literary seminar course that examines theoretical perspectives associated with Afrofuturism in science/speculative fiction. This course will explore tropes and aesthetic practices associated with Afrofuturism as a part of the African American literary tradition, inclusive of literary conceptions of neo-slave narratives.
