AFST 20028 - The Contemporary Face of the African, Diaspora

Course Credit: 1
The African Diaspora is a community of people of African descent who reside in other areas of the world including the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean. This course will look at the historical and contemporary movements of the African people and the complex issues of identity and experience to which these processes give rise as well as the creative possibilities that flow from movement and being moved. This course will therefore examine theoretical explanations of global migration of people of African descent as well as historical and contemporary drivers of African migration. It will also examine the challenges and the socio-cultural and political influences of the African diaspora in the Americas, Europe, the Caribbean, and the African Continent. [AH, C]
