Our knowledge of Africa in the United States is heavily influenced by news reports and films. In this course, you will develop your analytic writing skills while learning about Africa from the perspective of Anglophone West African writers. Readings include African short stories, plays, poems, news articles, and essays written by Africans during the final decades of the British Empire, as well as texts by other imperial writers from the same time period. Course reading provides information about West Africans’ experience of colonialism and Empire, and is also a practical collection of material that you will work with as you develop your writing skills through in-class writing assignments and papers. Over the course of the academic term, you will strengthen the following writing skills: summarizing, describing, analyzing, comparing, and contrasting arguments.
