Work, working people and working class movements in modern Africa are the focus of this introductory course. Through contemporary and historical cross-country studies of workers in a wide variety of economic, political and institutional settings, we will evaluate rival perspectives on a host of interesting and controversial topics. These include changing occupational and industrial formations, gender and racial/ethnic gaps in jobs and income, poverty and inequality, immigration, urban informal employment, worker training and health care, labor unions, government’s regulatory and job creation roles. This is a distribution course in both the Behavioral Social Sciences and the Cross-Cultural categories.
