Dear Black Studies community,

As we move into the beginning of the new academic year (with several  
weeks of drop/add), I wanted to remind everyone that we added a course  
after Spring registration. Please spread the word.

	Blks288: Food, Nutrition, and Health in Africa, which will be taught  
by Francis Alemawor, of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and  
Technology in Kumasi, Ghana, in Fall 2011. The course will meet M/W  
1-2:15 in Newton 205. The course is now listed (under Black Studies)  
on the master schedule page and Knightweb and available for  
registration. The description is below.
Blks288: Food, Nutrition, and Health in Africa (3 credits)
                  This course will generally examine the status,  
influencing factors and challenges of food system and food security in  
Africa, and their interaction with nutrition and health status of  
Africans; and also consider the linkage between agriculture and  
nutrition and health in the social and economic development of the  
African continent. The course is targeted at a broad audience and does  
not necessarily require specific technical knowledge to make use of  
the insights.
	Required text: D. D. Watson II (Ed) (2010). The African Food System  
and Its Interactions with Human Health and Nutrition. First Edition,  
Cornell University Press Ithaca, NY

Also, Prof. Catherine Adams will be coordinating the Africana/ Black  
Studies minor and major for the 2011-12 academic year. In addition to  
this class, she is working on a number of events in what promises to  
be an exciting year for our program.

Best wishes,
