This course explores how modern European colonialism profoundly shaped the continent of Africa and “New World” societies of the Atlantic Ocean. Lectures and discussions will examine interconnected historical developments, including the impact of abolition; spread of “legitimate commerce”; pan-Africanist thought; imperial policymaking; evangelical missionaries; legal revolutions broadening "citizenship"; African-based Christian revivals; “racial science” and Social Darwinism; and the advent of modern-day human rights campaigns. A principal goal of this course is to train students to locate and analyze relevant primary and secondary sources. Subject to approval, you may write a paper on any topic related to the themes above.
HIST 300 DL1 is a distance education section taught synchronously. Students should expect to be online on the days and times scheduled.
