Other topics include the creation of trading networks and empires and the development and consequences of various slave trades in Africa. The course also examines how Africans contended with the social, political, economic, cultural, and environmental challenges and opportunities of colonial rule, with close attention to Africans’ struggles to achieve independence and meet the challenges of the contemporary world.” Maximum enrollment is 40.
