Description

 

Zambia Tab 1Program

This study abroad course is intended to introduce students to diverse aspects of Southern African societies and cultures including literature, arts and music, folklore, geography, architecture, and the economy. It will also enable students to explore and critically examine the predominant cultural, historical, social, economic, and political themes of the Southern African region through site visits, lectures, fireside group discussions, films, journal-keeping, essay assignment, and other related activities. Southern Africa is an ideal site for the study of contemporary Africa, and Zambia has been selected as a good sampled representative of the region because of its situation within the economic history and politics of the general social context of Southern African life. 

By participating in this program students will learn to understand and explain Zambia’s development in the context of African American and African Studies in the context of globalization; and understand why people behave as they do within the structures of human societies, cultures, and institutions of Zambia. 

Students will be able to evaluate the link between colonial and postcolonial realities, the role of various actors—the state, civil society, social movements, international agencies and issues of identity in Africa’s development experience.


Locations

This Program will begin in Zambia's capital city, Lusaka.  Students will then travel to Chirundu and Ndola before departing from Livingstone, Zambia.


Accommodation 

Students will be staying in a centrally located hotels.
