Class Meeting Time: Tuesdays, 6:00PM-8:30PM
of the Course: This course will explore the history of South Africa and
its surrounding countries, touching on issues of racial identity, economic change,
political ideologies and gender. Areas of particular focus include the relationship
between Dutch and British settlers, the great Xhosa cattle-killing of 1857,
the "mineral revolution" and migrant labor, and the development of
the apartheid system. The course will use a variety of sources-including literature
and film-to examine what makes Southern Africa a distinctive cultural, political
and economic space.
