BWS 220 - Writing in Africa and the African Diaspora

3 hours
Students in this course will develop knowledge and understanding of the lived experience of African people by exploring a selection of writings (novels, poems, short stories) by African authors. Classic works of African literature will expose class members to the challenges that Africans faced during the colonial period and will provide insight into post-colonial realities. Writers from the African diaspora (United States, Caribbean) whose works give expression to the African experience in the “New World” will likewise be discussed.
