INDS 172 Voices of South Africa

South Africa, the "Rainbow Nation," is built on the diversity of its people practicing many cultures and religions, and speaking 11 official languages. In 1994, the first democratic elections were held ending four decades of apartheid. Its society drives an energetic world of culture that draws on African, European, and Asian roots and breathtaking scenery to forge a distinct identity. However, South Africa also suffers under the HIV/AIDS pandemic. This course introduces students to South Africa and confronts a variety of its "voices". [H, SS, GM1]
