Description

What is independence? What does it look like? How will it be achieved? These were urgent questions for colonized people all over the world and Africans were no exception. This year, 2020, marks the 60th anniversary of the “Year of Africa.” 1960 was known as the Year of Africa because in that year alone, seventeen nation-states gained independence on the African continent. Decolonization was a complex phenomenon and it carries themes of global significance. In this course, we will explore independence struggles from various parts of the continent and use these as a context to learn about critical analysis and academic writing.

Instruction is remote and a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous. Enrolled students are expected to be available remotely during scheduled class times. Course is open to remote-only students.
