AAAS 87.08 Indigenous Slavery in Ghana and Africa

Using the Atlantic slave trade as a backdrop the course provides an introduction to slavery in Ghana and Africa and the Atlantic slave trade out of West Africa. Instead of presenting a comprehensive survey, covering every aspect of this vast subject, this course takes a topical approach by focusing on a selection of themes and issues that are crucial to developing an understanding of slavery in Ghana and Africa and the slave trade across the Atlantic. Themes to be covered include African and European agency in slavery and slave trade; slavery and slave trade in framing the social structure of Ghana; the legacies of slavery in Ghana and Africa and the ways in which slavery is remembered in Ghana. Throughout the course, we will pay attention to the debilitating effects of slavery and the slave trade on Africa and on its development.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
