This interdisciplinary humanities course studies modern Africa and Asia mainly through their literature and films, and secondarily through historical documents, art and/or music. Students will study the primary texts to understand key twentieth century issues, events and themes. Writing assignments and in-class discussions will enable students to develop their interpretive and analytical skills which are important in making cross-cultural comparisons.
