About the course
The course is designed to provide its participants with a broad introductory understanding of the cultures and peoples of Africa in a global context. The period covered is from about 1441 to the present! So vast is the scope of our course that we will strategically consider dominant themes, [empires and civilizations, ancient kingdoms, the slave trade, imperialism, colonialism, nationalist movements and the accession to independence, the African nation-state, the manifestations of popular culture, the challenges of the post-cold war era, women’s resistance to male power structures, ethnic conflict, and the dilemmas of globalization] rather than merely study an inventory of select historical events/experiences in detail and chronologically for their own sake.
