Program Overview

Program Description:
This program offers the unique window to explore many themes in African studies through an interdisciplinary look at Senegal. We explore themes such as the slave trade; French colonialism and its policies; important literary and cultural movements, such as negritude; the relationship between religion and contemporary politics; urban history; and public health. Dakar is also a very international, stable, and cosmopolitan capital city that is culturally rich in art festivals, architecture, live music concerts, and films; it equally has a renowned intellectual community.
