AAS 324 (ANTH 324, GS 324) Globalization and Development in Africa 4 Credits

This course examines the challenges Africa presents to expectations of modernization and development. It poses these questions: Have African societies been left behind by globalization, shut out from it, or do they merely reflect an unexpected side of globalization processes? What is Africa's place in the neoliberal world order? What role does "African culture" play in generating or blocking social change? And, how can anthropology illuminate prospects for change on what has long been regarded as the "dark continent"?
