AAS 2308 - African World Cultures

Credits: 3 hrs
In this survey course students will be introduced to and explore an understanding of the concept of a culturally and historically linked African world by (a) examining the cultural history of African peoples and their movement through time and space from antiquity to the present and (b) analyzing the  major tenets of cultural unity and diasporic theories and their application.  The course will use an interdisciplinary approach to examine the spiritual, ideational, and physical-material dimensions of African culture, and those that participate in that culture, in its socio-political, ecological and historically constituted contexts.
