|AAMS 339 - Modern Africa (3).|
Description: This course is a general introduction to African studies and offers a cursory examination of the culture and history of the colonial period to modern times. The scope of this class will be wide necessitating a selective approach that will focus upon the ways in which Africans have shaped their own past and the ways in which Africa has interacted with the world system. Consequently some of the major topics we will address in this course will include: the Impact of Colonialism, Negritude, Dependency theory, Imperialism, Legitimate trade, issues of Nationalism and Modernity and Africa.
