Course Description: This course studies selected societies and cultures of sub-Saharan Africa. Focus is on traditional societies before colonization. This attempt to understand the nature of pre-colonial African societies is based on the premise that knowledge of the past throws light on the current issues of these societies and makes it possible to assess the problems relating to today's struggles. Topics include patterns of social organization including authority and exercise of power, kinship and family relations, and economic relations; systems of belief and knowledge-cognitive systems, religion, witchcraft, and magic; processes of change and transformation. The course emphasizes the interdependence of social, economic, and political institutions and processes.
