AAST 230 - Contemporary Issues in Africa
3 SS, CD New Course Added 08/30/2006
First Semester. While Africa is a complex and diverse continent, there are some things common to African countries since their political independence. For example, most post-colonial African societies have grappled with the legacies of colonialism and the challenges of independence. This course will familiarize students with some of the major developmental issues facing contemporary Africans (e.g., economic and political instability and civil unrest, HIV/AIDS and health problems) and will examine key theoretical and ideological debates about socioeconomic and political developments in post- colonial Africa.
