AFST 047 - (LT) Africa, Greece, and Rome

Semester Hours: 3
A survey of the representation of Africa in Greek and Roman literature from the time of Homer until the Arab conquests of the seventh century CE, and in the works of African writers and poets over this long period. This course will examine how the intellectual tradition has sought to minimize Africa’s role in shaping ideas about classical Greece and Rome. The colonial narrative is one of marginalization, occlusion, and erasure, but this course will foreground intellectual endeavors that rehabilitate the African presence in the (re)creation of the classical past.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Credit is given for AFST 047 or CLL 047, but not both.
