SO 275 Introduction to Africana Studies

This course is transnational in nature and interdisciplinary in delivery. The course focuses on the interconnected historical, artistic and political forces of the African and African Diaspora experience. As a transnational course it examines the Afrodiasporic experience through the relationship of peoples, ideas, cultures and events across geographical boundaries. And as an interdisciplinary endeavor it informs and filters that experience through an integrative framework of various subjects of inquiry and methodologies. The course also introduces students to the content and contours of African Studies as a field of study-its genealogy, development, theoretical orientiations, multiple methodological strategies and future challenges.
