New Course: AAAS 209a. Africa Rising?

African Economies/Cultures and Their Global Implications

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.
