CHIST 3360 Africa Since 1800

The primary goal of this course is to introduce students to the wide spectrum of the history of Africa from 1800 through the end of the millennium. It will pay special attention to some of the decisive changes in African social and cultural lives caused by colonial intervention, and the impact of those changes on nation building in the post-independence decades. The course will also explore crucial historiographical questions.
