HIST 339 - History of Modern Africa 3 hours


This course offers a history of Africa from the early nineteenth century to the present day. The course examines the European imperial scramble to colonize Africa during the later 1800s and early 1900s, 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 ANTH 339. Prerequisite: HIST 102 or HIST 112.
