J. Byfield.

This course examines the rise of nationalism as well as the process and aims of decolonization in sub-Saharan Africa.   It draws on films and a variety of primary and secondary materials in order to illuminate the complex and contested arenas from which African nationalisms emerged.   Throughout the course we will examine the ways in which race, ethnicity, gender, and class shaped the discourse of nationalism as well as nationalist strategies and agendas.   We will also explore the ways in which the conflicts and tensions of the nationalist period continue to shape post-colonial state and society.
