New Course: AAAS 209a. Africa Rising?
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
New African Economies/Cultures and Their Global Implications - (New Course)
The AAAS Department welcomes newly appointed Jean and John Comaroff, Professors of African and African American Studies and of Anthropology, and Oppenheimer Fellows in African Studies. Jean and John will be teaching a new course, AAAS 209A: Africa Rising? New African Economies/Cultures and Their Global Implications. This workshop will explore Africa’s changing place in the world - and the new economies, legalities, socialities, and cultural forms that have arisen there. It will also interrogate the claim that the African present is a foreshadowing of processes beginning to occur elsewhere; that, therefore, it is a productive source of theory about current conditions world-wide. The workshop, open to faculty and students, will meet Mondays from 6:00-7:30. 15 students will also meet on Mondays, 12:00-1:30.
