AFS 1020: Africa Discovered - Africa & Africans in World History (Freshman Honors Seminar) (3 cr.)
Despite being the cradle of current human societies, Africa is still the continent linked to "discovery," perhaps reflecting the prejudices or fantasies of outsiders; more likely, it suggests an Africa defined as the "other", especially in the West.  The course covers the major historical periods from early humanity to the most recent.  Only open to first-year students by invitation.  (Spring)

AFS 1022: Europeans and Americans through African Eyes (Freshman Honors Seminar) (3 cr.)
Most of the literature about the relations between Africans and Westerners is about the West's views.  Therefore little is known about what Africa and Africans think about Europe.  This is due  in part to the fact that most scholars rely heavily on European and American documents and perspectives. This course addresses the issue of how Africans have viewed Europe and North America through time.  Only open to first-year students by invitation.  (Fall)
