TR 08:00 am-09:30 am CARN 107 William Moseley
*First Year Course only* This class goes beyond the superficial media interpretations of the vast African continent to complicate our understanding of this fascinating region. As geographers, we will place contemporary African developments in their historical and global context. The course provides a basic background in African history and physical geography, leading to discussion of advanced topics in contemporary African studies. The course covers a broad range of contemporary topics, including: human-environment interactions (forest and drylands management); population dynamics (population growth, distribution and mobility); medical geography (disease, health care and policy); agricultural development (traditional farming systems, cash crops, policy); urban economies (evolution of the urban structure, industry, housing); political geography (democratization, conflict); culture and change (religion, modernization); development (ideology and economic development, Africa in the global economy); and social geography (African women and development, education).

ANTH 394-01  Gender, Power, and Sexualities in Africa
TR 01:20 pm-02:50 pm CARN 05 Dianna Shandy
*Cross-listed with WGSS 394-01* This course uses gender, one of the most dynamic areas of Africanist research today, as a lens to examine struggles over power and human rights in Africa. It engages some of the most recent discussions on sexualities by examining the body as a site of political, legal, and social contestation. In particular, we will interrogate the local and global dimensions of the recent and highly controversial anti-homosexuality legislation in Uganda and the implications for discussions of human rights and sexualities throughout the continent. Through reading ethnographic and life history texts and researching their own projects, students will grapple with themes such as “the status” of women in hierarchical vs. complementary conceptualizations of social power, the making of men, the meaning of “tradition” in historical perspective, the relationship between kinship, politics, and civil order in Africa, the challenges of forming coalitions around gender-based human rights issues, the intersection of gender and patterns of production and reproduction, and the ways in which conflict and post-conflict settings bring intersections of gender, power, sexualities, and human rights to the fore.
