HIST 273 - Bold Mamas and Audacious Entrepreneurs: Women and Power in the African Past


This course looks at the meaning of women's strength, power, and status in early African societies. Students combine readings of recent scholarship with fieldwork to reconsider the meaning of literature that pathologized women of African origin as man-dominating matriarchal figures, or silent victims. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
