HS 377 - Kinship, Culture & Slavery: Creating an African Diaspora in the Americas
(3 cr.) Students investigate the transatlantic slave trade as the primary mode by which Africans arrived in the Americas from the 15th to the 19th centuries. This class explores ideas and cultural traditions Africans brought with them to the New World, which provided a framework through which they interpreted, understood and re-created their lives in a new environment. The goal is to uncover how the African past shaped and defined Africans as they were transported across the Atlantic. Using an interdisciplinary approach, participants examine continuities and transformations of African structures and cosmology in the Diaspora. Prerequisite: one course from HS level 200; Every Other Year, Spring
