AFR 203 Fall 2013 Modern African History

Cross Listed as HIST204
This course surveys the history of Sub-Saharan African in the 19th and 20th centuries. We will explore the parallel and shared histories of informal imperialism, European conquest, colonialism, liberation struggles, decolonization, and postcolonial challenges in West, Central, East, and Southern Africa. We will particularly explore Africans' lived experiences of these two centuries of history: how have Africans been affected by the different historical processes of the 19th and 20th centuries? And how did they actively participate in shaping these processes? Course materials will include films, photographs, music, fiction, written primary sources, and recent scholarship.
