SOCI 4434:Emerging Social Issues in Africa

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
This course examines current social, political and economic trends and issues in Africa, including a critical analysis of transformations in contemporary African societies. This course frames Africa’s sociopolitical history around the notion of “contact” in the eras of pre-European “contact”, European “contact and domination” (trade, slavery, colonialism, and imperialism), and post-colonial political formations, including military adventurism. This course also examines social movements and other forms of resistance, including an examination of Pan-Africanism and anti-colonial nationalisms.
