AFRSTY116-01A African Civilizations: Historical Perspectives (with Adam Meyer)

This course provides a broad survey of the historical processes that have shaped African societies from the earliest traces of human culture to the abolitions of slavery.. Specific attention will be paid to such precolonial African societies as Ancient Egypt, Nubia, Mali, Ghana, and Great Zimbabwe among others. The changing nature of the relationship between Africa and the Western world will also be analyzed, and in this respect the trans-Atlantic slave trade will receive close attention. We will also critically reflect on the ways in which knowledge on African history has been constructed and how it may influence our image of the African continent.
