Class Number: 1199

"Urban History" Discusses urbanization, from the earliest cities of
Ancient Egypt and Axum to the postcolonial cities of Africa and the
African diaspora. While the citizens of African cities have created
unique urban centers by adapting and adjusting to their environment,
they have also created cities that are local manifestations of a
larger global urban culture. Students will choose a city in the
African past and explore the environmental, economic, social,
political and cultural factors that contributed to its growth and
development. Cross listed with CITY B237.
