SO 275/ PAS275 Introduction to Africana Studies

(4 Credits)
PAS 275  

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 orientations, multiple methodological strategies, and future challenges.
