This course presents an anthropological approach to the societies of Africa that recognizes both the diversity of Africa and the unifying themes common to African cultures. Students will explore the African past, the impact of colonization, and the variety of family, economic, and political arrangements in contemporary African societies. African music, dance, oral literature and art will be investigated in both traditional and modern contexts. These varied course experiences will provide students with an integrated view of Africa today.
