Students then discuss strategies for countering this discourse within alternative and oppositional forms, traditions, and practices that have emerged and are emerging; and look at the version of Africa's participation (or lack of participation) in the major movements and phenomena of our time. Assessment: two assignments (15% each); one group project (20%); final exam (50%).
