AFAM 3148 History of South Africa
Robert B. Anderson South Africa

Gold, diamonds, Great Trek, Boer war, apartheid, Mandela- the history of South Africa! Since the encounter with Europeans in the seventeenth century, South Africa has been a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic land. This course examines the peoples and their history, beginning with the Dutch settlers, continuing with the Native issues and the Great Trek, followed by the mineral revolutions and the Boer War, and finally race politics and Apartheid. Like the diamonds discovered there, South Africa is multifaceted presenting a variety of shapes and sizes, hue and tones, but not always brilliance and clarity. Based in Pretoria, students will have the opportunity to visit Johannesburg, Kimberley, Bloemfontein, and Cape Town to experience South African history firsthand.
