Cíle předmětu
This course introduces and explores the phenomenon of the Harlem Renaissance, a period spanning from the early 1920s until 1938/1939. The Harlem Renaissance is considered a watershed era; it is viewed as the heyday of black, particularly African American, art as it brought together various themes, authors, and genres from the fields of literature, music, visual arts, philosophy, and culture in general. The course traces the evolution of the period from pioneering works in the early 1920s, through its most active period between 1925 and 1933, until its end marked by the publication of Zora Neale Hurston’s seminal novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. In keeping with the latest research in African American studies, it presents the Harlem Renaissance as both a nationwide and a transnational phenomenon with authors from a variety of U.S. regions as well as from Nigeria, France or the Caribbean, rather than a movement limited solely to the Harlem borough. In addition to providing an overview of the literature of the period, the course also highlights the interconnection and cooperation among various arts, artists, races, and regions. For this purpose, it features sessions concerning the Harlem Renaissance magazines and newspapers, novels, short fiction, poetry, films, theatre, and music. The course thus offers an interdisciplinary mosaic presenting the Harlem Renaissance as a complex phenomenon in American literary and cultural history.
