Section Information for Fall 2023
From the nineteenth century to the twentieth century, European colonialism profoundly affected Africa. The course examines this history using multi-disciplinary methodologies. We explore a range of themes that focus on the Sub-Saharan region: legacies of racial slavery; spread of “legitimate commerce,” evangelical Christianity, and Pan-Africanism; influence of neo-imperialism and Social Darwinism; local resistance movements that challenged white settler rule; and colonial abuses that led to international human rights campaigns and decolonization. You will be encouraged to engage in debates after consulting primary materials, journal articles, books, online peer-reviewed information, and other scholarly sources. Your ideas and interpretations are always welcome. The issues we study still shape Africa—and the current global system.
