AFRICA AND ARABIA

AAAS 306

This course explores communities, cultures, and connections between Africa and Arabia. It provides concepts, information, and theories that help students understand cultural relationships between Arabs and Africans, historical backgrounds, migration within and emigration from the two groups, and areas of collaboration and contention in the globalized world. Selected themes of religion, language, music, and narratives against European colonialism will be examined as case studies within overlapping configurations of identity politics. Scholarly readings, political biographies, films, guest experts, as well as visiting local religious and diasporic communities are vital components of the course. Instructor: Lo
