INDS 174 Global Senegal: Alternative Modernities

This course provides an intensive learning experience in a French-speaking West African country. English is widely spoken by young urban residents who study it in school, and roughly 42 percent of the country's population lives in Dakar, the capital, and its surrounding towns. Senegal is well known for its local intelligentsia, especially historians and economists, and is an international site of study of the pre-colonial, colonial, and post-colonial experience in Africa.
