AFR 481 Spring 2014 Love and Revolution in Africa (W)

Cross Listed as HIST481
This tutorial interrogates how Africans fought to gain control over their individual and collective destinies in the face of oppressive colonial regimes, apartheid, and difficult postcolonial conditions. The violence, but also the new possibilities that defined the 20th century, thoroughly transformed Africans' understandings of themselves and views of the world. Students will analyze how historians of Africa have historicized feelings, political passions, intimacies, and their relationships with politics. Students will also read fiction and use films and written primary sources to develop their own reflections on the connections between the categories of love and revolution in Africa.
