ANTH 339 - History of Modern Africa 3 hours

This course offers a history of Africa from the early 19th century to the present day. The course examines: the European imperial scramble to colonize Africa during the later 1800’s and 1900’s; the broader integration of African societies into the world economy during that process: the social, political and cultural impact of imperial policies; Western popular images of Africa in the colonial period; the nationalist struggles that resulted in the independent African states; and the achievements of, and persistent problems faced by, those post-colonial states. Cross-listed as HIST 339 . Prerequisite: HIST 102  or HIST 112 .
