This course examines the relationship between education and social, economic and political development in Africa. The course takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding how education is linked to historical and contemporary processes of social change in Africa. We will explore the tension between education as a mechanism for domination and its potential as a tool for liberation in colonial and post-colonial Africa and give special attention to educational inequality as it relates to race, culture, gender and class. Course requirements include analytical essays, a final research project and active engagement in class discussions. This seminar seeks to introduce students to the concept of development and to provide them with an opportunity to think and write critically about the concept as it relates to education in Africa.
