African Politics - 33772 - POLS 3530 - 801
Topical Section Description: This course will teach you what contemporary African politics and society are like and how they came to be so. To do this we will look in-depth at a few country case studies and delve into thematic areas such as colonialism, independence, state formation, ethnic diversity and identity, development, civil war and violence. We will think about why Africa remains poor, and whether the West should or even can do anything about it. You will be introduced to major debates on aid and development and encouraged to approach them sceptically, developing your critical thinking skills. You will also receive instruction in how to conduct political research and be given the opportunity to apply these methods to an independent research project.
