AFR 200 - Introduction to Africana Studies (4 Cr.)

Rather than teaching the history and culture of Africa or communities in the African diaspora, “Introduction to Africana Studies” aims to provide students in the Africana studies minor with key theories, approaches, and critical lenses that they may use in ensuing coursework and research in the Africana minor program. This reading- and writing- intensive course covers such topics as: basic geographical and demographic information about the continent of Africa and the African diaspora; the history of Africana studies in academe; theories that embrace the view that there are many Black experiences, rather than one overarching worldview; approaches toward the examination of Black identities within the context of gender, race, sexuality, and class; and select, exemplary humanistic/social scientific research by pioneering scholars in Africana studies. Fall semester.
