HS 362 - African History Since 1850
(3 cr.) Students explore the onset of colonialism in the mid-19th century; the process of colonization and the dynamics of colonialism; the roots of national liberation movements throughout the continent, and the complex and contingent process of decolonization. In considering the early postcolonial period, students investigate the economic, social and cultural landscapes of a variety of newly independent countries. They then trace the trajectories of postcolonial states through the later years of the 20th century. Finally, students conclude by reflecting upon the contemporary relevance of this history.
