Das Seminar findet in englischer Sprache statt. Written between the late 18th and late 19th century, slave narratives detailed the life experience of enslaved Africans under the brutal economic system of New World slavery as well as their escape to freedom. These (mostly) autobiographical narratives enabled African Americans to bear witness to their traumatic experience, to indict an inhuman system, and to lay claim to the human rights denied to them under slavery. At the same time, they also served as powerful instruments in the abolitionist movement and thus also catered to political exigencies as well as to the expectations of a predominantly white middle-class audience. Slave narratives therefore present us, at one and the same time, with profoundly personal accounts of traumatic experience and the pursuit of freedom and self-determination as well as with complex mediations of experience and aspiration in terms of the demands of genre, the literary market, the political situation, and audience expectations. In this seminar, we shall engage in close readings and critical discussions of several of these original slave narratives. We will consider how they strove to give voice to the experience of unique individuals even as they negotiated the pressures of the political and social. This is a reading intensive course; so be prepared to read several prose works, along with relevant secondary literature, and to participate actively in class discussions.
