AFST 364 - Africa in the Global Context

An appraisal of the global presence of Africa, both ancient and present, aimed at assessing Africa’s competitiveness in a global context. Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the socio-cultural and economic dynamics of Africa and Africans around the world will be examined. The course will interrogate the enduring effects of colonialism and neo-colonialism on the fortunes of Africa. Students will have an opportunity to develop people centered programs aimed at improving conditions in Africa. The course will use a series of lectures, discussions, audio visuals, and project development and implementation to help the student fully understand the unique case of Africa. See program director.
