How are East African communities organized and how have they changed over
the course of the last 2000 years? What impact did European colonialism
have on these societies? How have East African societies responded to
crises such as the AIDS epidemic and ethnic genocide in Rwanda? We explore
these questions and others as we read texts, watch documentary films and
discuss the features of the East African past. No prerequisites. Students
take three exams with the possibility of writing a paper in place of one
of the exams.
