HIST 273 Africa From the 1800s

The course builds on HIST 272 (but is not a necessary prerequisite), providing students with a survey examination of African history from the encroachment of European imperialism to the recent past. Students will be introduced to the historical context of various significant issues affecting many African states and peoples today. Themes explored include the imposition of colonial rule; collaboration and resistance; decolonization; one party states and dictators; conflict and genocide; economic dependence and development; and how these themes affected the everyday lives of various African communities.
