Religion in Africa

Explores the intricacies and interactions of indigenous, Islamic, and Christian traditions in sub-Saharan Africa. Seeks to interrogate assumptions--about personhood and power, religion and magic, tradition and modernity--that have long precluded understanding African societies in their own contexts and on their own terms. Readings drawn from history, anthropology, and fiction. May meet either the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures or Social Inequality requirement. (Not offered 2023-24).
