European colonial rule came to most of Africa during the late 19th century. Africans engaged with colonial policies in complex ways, sometimes rejecting European interventions outright, at other times taking advantage of social and economic change. This course examines the colonial and postindependence eras from African and European perspectives, covering colonial administration, critiques of imperialism, Pan-Africanism, postcolonial conflicts, development, and democratization. We will use multiple source materials including primary documents, novels, and film.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy
This course introduces students to multiple African societies and cultures across the continent while examining the internal and external factors contributing to historical change.
