NEW!  LS 191: Introduction to Africana Studies

Africana Studies Poster - Title, CRN, etc.

CRN 25566

 
This course explores the themes that characterize the historical experiences and contributions of the African diaspora in the modern world. It will provide students with an interdisciplinary approach to the basic concepts and literatures of Africana studies from forced migration to the adopted homelands of the African diaspora. The course begins by outlining the methodological challenges in the orientation of African and African American Studies and raises questions that interrogate a monolithic “African” identity. Students will explore the historical developments within which different notions of agency, power, community, identity and race have worked to transform the experiences of the descendants of the African diaspora.
