GLOS 3500 Culture and Change in Africa
Africa is large continent, with diverse regions, societies, histories, and cultures. This course introduces the ethnography of Africa, explores the historical and cultural conditions underpinning current predicaments facing African societies, and highlights change and resistance to change since European colonization. In this course, we will come to understand that tragedy is only one facet of African lives and experiences.
Teams of 5-6 students will work together to research and write a Wikipedia article related to the content of this course. Students will be making significant additions to Wikipedia related to African culture, history, and politics. Teams will work together for the entire semester. Your final articles will be posted to Wikipedia.
The Wikipedia Project consists of a series of individual and team assignments. Individual assignments will count towards your participation and homework grade for the course. Team assignments will be graded collectively, but each team member will receive a customized, individual Wikipedia Team Based Learning Grade.
