AAST 132 - Introduction to African Studies: Patterns, Issues and Controversies


Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3SS, CD, WR
This course introduces students to the study of Africa. It examines the often negative media representation of Africa as a continuation of a long pattern established by colonial anthropologists, officials and literary writers. It also examines the destabilizing impact of colonialism on pre-colonial African political institutions, social organizations, patterns of belief, etc. Africa’s current difficulties can more fully be understood within this context, which contemporary media portrayals of Africa often ignore.
Enrollment Limit: 25
Instructor: D. Opoku
