HIST 1113 The African Diaspora and the World I (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course is the first of a two-course sequence that explores the African diaspora and its relationship to the world. By African diaspora, we are referring to both the continent and the communities of people of African descent that have formed in the Americas, in Europe, and in Asia as the result of forced and voluntary migrations over the last five hundred years. The course seeks to foster a fuller understanding of the African diaspora’s role in the development of the modern world and the experiences of African-descended peoples from a global perspective.
