Course Description

This seminar explores the history of gender, sexuality and family in African contexts in the 19th to 21st century. It probes the ways gender and sexuality have shaped and been shaped by historical processes, by unpacking the concepts of “gender” and “sexuality” and their relevance to African contexts. The course first investigates these changes by looking at gender and sexuality in African states of the early 19th century. It then analyzes the ways that colonial conquest and consolidation of colonial rule affected gender norms. Finally, it examines the debates about gender and sexuality in the postcolonial period and their legacies in the present. This seminar raises key questions about the transformation of gender roles and sexualities through the slave trade, colonial conquest and decolonization.
