First Year Seminar: Africans Experiences in the Second World War

History 192 - Fall 2020

Most conventional histories of the Second World War pay scant attention to Africa, thereby creating the misconception that the war had little impact on the peoples of the African continent. This introductory seminar restores the experiences of ordinary African women and men to the larger historical narratives of both Africa and World War II. Combining personal memoirs with official primary sources reveals not only how the global conflict influenced African history, but also how Africans helped shape the final outcome and consequences of the war. This course is for first-year, non-transfer students only
