Graduate Research Seminar in African History


About the Course:

This is a two-quarter graduate seminar in histories of any part of the continent covering the 19th-20th centuries. The seminar will help students to focus their attention on closely reading and utilizing primary sources for a clearly-defined output, e.g., a dissertation chapter or a journal article. In addition to the primary materials, we will collectively assemble and read together a set of crucial books on areas of the students’ research interest. We will also invite local and outside guests to talk about their own research and lead seminars. Students earn 2 units per quarter.
