Despite persistent bias about it, the continents cultural complexity, social dynamism, and political/economic struggle has tremendous relevance for the study of global trends at the start of the 21st century. The central purpose of this upper-level course is to demonstrate that relevance by investigating the multiple dimensions of change in the independent states of sub-Saharan Africa. As such, it is an explicitly interdisciplinary study, involving as it does articulation of geography with anthropology, political science, history, and economics. COURSE OBJECTIVES To assess the unique character of Africas environmental issues To appreciate the diversity of African regional cultures To explore Africas indigenous histories To understand the social, political, and economic impacts of colonialism and Cold War in Africa

Extractions: Population: This former Portuguese colony is home to over twenty million people and to the largest unreached group in Africa possibly the world! It has the largest concentration of unreached peoples in Africa south of the equator. It is also considered to be one of the poorest countries on the globe. Mozambique was a Portuguese colony for more than four hundred years before attaining independence in 1975. During those years the colonial government recognized only the Catholic Church resulting in persecution of those calling themselves "Protestant". With independence came the establishment of communism so the persecution extended to all recognized as Christians. Although the Marxist ideology of the government continued until the early 1990's, beginning in 1982, missionaries, who had been expelled at independence, were allowed to re-enter. The government recognized the need for the support of everyone possible, including the evangelical churches. Despite the fact that missionary work in the country was non-existent between 1975 and 1982, the evangelical church grew quite rapidly among the Lomwe living in Zambezi Province.

The reasons are as varied as the patterns and processes: they seek to define themselves and their positions in society, to declare their allegiance to a god or to a cause, to conform to the customs of a group or to shock or entertain. From body painting to piercing to scarification, from tattoos to plastic surgery, from the Bronze age to the computer age, this film explores and celebrates the stunning diversity of body art. 2000. 50 min.

Extractions: Western Africa is the home of many of the sculptural traditions for which African art has become internationally known. Wood carving is especially prominent in Cote d'Ivoire, in Sierra Leone and in Nigeria. Western Africa also claims an extensive range of other art forms, including clay sculpture, bronze casting, jewelry, and weaving. Some of these traditions are driven by religious practices in agricultural societies, others by the patronage of kings. The Senufo people of the Cote d'Ivoire make a staff with a female figure at the top, symbolizing both the power of humans to reproduce and the fertility of the soil. Ghana is well known for its Kente cloth, carved wooden stools, gold jewelry, and wood carvings. In days past, the kings of Ghana wore so much gold that they inspired the saying: "Great men move slowly."

Extractions: Jump to: Introduction Facts for the Traveler When to Go Events ... Maps Time and tide have not been kind to Mozambique. A long, horrific civil war has scarred the country, shattered its infrastructure and left a million land mines scattered about the countryside. Much of its wildlife, including big game such as elephants and rhinos, has been decimated by war, and cyclones have ravaged its coastline. Droughts and floods take turns rubbing salt in Mozambique's wounds. Mozambicans are putting the past behind them and are rebuilding their country at a remarkable pace. Discussions between the government and the opposition have resulted in an easing of tension. It's now possible to travel in relative safety, though getting around does require keeping your wits about you. And there's a fair number of things to see, including world-renowned beaches, World Heritage sites, funky colonial architecture and colorful local culture. It has been estimated that more than one million land mines - laid by both sides during the war - remain unexploded in Mozambique. Some minefields have warning signs, but most are unmarked and often only get discovered when someone gets blown to bits. For this reason it is simply not safe to go wandering off into the bush anywhere without first seeking local advice - and even then your safety isn't guaranteed. Stay on roads and well-worn tracks where other people have obviously gone before.

Extractions: The Cost of the war Hundred of thousands have died from the direct or indirect effects of the war, and there are many thousands of orphans, widows and disabled people. Recent data for employment are scarce, although government figures from 1995 indicates that 63% of people working in Luanda were employed in the informal sector. Angola is ranked 160th out of 174 countries in the UN development Program's Human Development Index in 2000. Ethnicity The huge war-related population upheavals have transformed Angolan society. The first of the these upheavals was in 1960, when hundreds of thousands of Bakongo were uprooted in the north-western provinces, following the harsh colonial response to the UPA rebellion, and took refuge across the border in what is now the DRC (ex-Zaire). Other Bakongo, and Africans in some other parts of the country, were regrouped into fortified villages by the portugueses. During the 1980s, most of the Bakongo
