History 161 - Hst-Africa Snc 1500
TU TH 2:30PM 3:45PM
This survey course examines African history from the 16th century to the present. It focuses on three major developments in African history: slavery and the rise of global capitalism; colonial conquest and rule; and decolonization and the end of empire. As we study African-authored essays, novels, art, music, and film, we will explore how African women and men experienced these periods of complex political, economic, and cultural change. Throughout, we will pay particular attention to the ?making? of African history. Who writes African history? Whose voices are centered? Whose voices are marginalized?
