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.
