Seminar, SWS: 2, lecture number: 55501


Mittwoch, 10-12; 0.41.2 S136, NW III

This seminar is an introduction to topics and methods in African history. The purpose of the course is to give an overview of periods, problems and concepts in African history in a longue durée perspective. It aims by no means at an exhaustive overview of African past. Rather, it deals with central themes of African history like slavery, colonialism, state building and urbanisation.
