History 399 Special Topics: Slavery and the Slave Trade in Africa

Class Meeting Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30 AM-11:20 AM

Description 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.
