Dear Africana/ Black Studies Community,
As students return to campus and finalize Fall schedules, I wanted to  
resend this information about Fall courses.
In particular, I want to draw your attention to Introduction to  
African History, offered by Prof. Jennifer Lofkranz. This course was  
added late and many people may be unaware of it.
Faculty, if appropriate, please announce this in class, and share this  
information with students who may be interested, as well as faculty/  
staff who are involved in advising students. I've enclosed a course  
description below.
In addition, please see the other Africana/ Black Studies courses  
being offered.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hist288: Introduction to African History, Professor J. Lofkrankz. This  
course is designed to familiarize you with major themes in African  
History with a particular emphasis on regions south of the Sahara from  
the ancient period to the end of colonial rule. Among the themes that  
recur in the course are identity formation, political and religious  
change, and the challenges of slavery and colonialism. Upon completion  
of this course, you will be able to participate knowledgably in  
exchanges of ideas about the continent, its people, and their place in  
world history.  You will also encounter and learn to apply a number of  
broad historical concepts. (W/F, 1-2:15, Newton 209)
