ANTH 3360:Anthropology and Africa

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
This course introduces students to methods, theories, and topics in African historical and contemporary anthropology. Particular emphasis is placed on how people from the West have encountered and come to understand African peoples’ societies and cultures and vice versa. This course examines how the colonial encounter helped structure methodological and conceptual formulations in anthropology and subsequent critiques and revisions. It also examines many contemporary African issues through the lens of anthropology.
