AFST 364 - Advanced Writing in Africana Studies

(3.00)
An advanced writing course that complements students' liberal arts training for careers in Africana Studies related professions/fields such as international relations, education, history, journalism, community action, non-profit organization, government affairs, public relations, law, public-speaking, and diversity training and mediation. This course differs from AFST 264  with respect to rigor and content by requiring students to utilize advanced skills of critical analysis within the framework of interdisciplinarity introduced in AFST 100  and AFST 264  to draft a complex final research paper whose topic and approach reflects their evolving intellectual advancement. While the course continues to address the globally recognized traditions of excellence celebrated by the Nobel committee (this time concerning Peace not Literature), as an upper division seminar, it prioritizes such content in terms of history, politics, social justice, and cultural philosophy. Students will thus have a unique opportunity to chronicle their philosophical responses to political events, systems of oppression, and humanitarian activism through journaling and through the ongoing development of complex critical ideas that will evolve into theses that support both short and lengthy assignments. Recommended Preparation ENGL 100 , AFST 100 , or any 200-level AFST course with a grade of "C" or better, or permission of the instructor.
