Imagining the Global South: The Politics and Praxis of Dreaming


Dreaming, imagining, hallucinating are at the heart of how new ways of being and living in the world come about. Through closely reading the ways imagination works as politics and in politics, as theory and as practice in the lives of people in the Global South, this class asks just what is manifested through imagined pasts and futures. Grounded in theory, history and ethnographic spaces, students will challenge the limits of their own imaginations and explore what it might mean when we are really able to dream/hallucinate different version of the worlds we think we live in and the bodies we are told to inhabit.
