Section Information for Fall 2021
From the nineteenth century to the twentieth century, European colonialism profoundly shaped the continent of Africa and other (New World) societies with links to Africa, including the United States. Lectures and discussions will explore this history and the methodologies that scholars employ to examine it. Our course will cover a range of hemes, including the legacies of slavery and abolition; spread of “legitimate commerce” and pan-African thought; evangelical missionaries and African revivals; “racial science” and Social Darwinism; and colonial abuses that inspired human rights campaigns. A goal of this class is to teach students to locate and analyze primary and secondary sources. The final paper will need to develop an argument that critically interprets historical contexts. 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.
