The African continent south of the Sahara is a complex array of cultures. This course will introduce students to Sub-Saharan Africa by emphasizing both the tremendous diversity of African cultures and the unifying themes that distinguish Africa as a cultural area. Topics include the history of human settlement and population migrations; social, political, and economic organization; and contemporary and social change. The special case of South Africa receives special attention at the end.
