Class Meeting Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30 AM-11:20 AM
of the Course: This course seeks to introduce students to the debates surrounding
the history of slavery in Africa. Did slavery in Africa predate the Atlantic
Slave Trade? What impact did the Atlantic Slave Trade have on African communities?
How did the Atlantic Slave Trade compare to other slave trades within and out
of Africa? How were slavery and slave trading related to European dominance
in Africa in the 19th century? These questions (and more) will be addressed
using both primary source material and scholarly arguments.
