This seminar will look at how European interests and African actions intersected to inform the economic, cultural, and political histories of colonial Africa from 1880-1975. In particular we will look at how Africans experienced, resisted, and influenced colonial systems in contrast to how Europeans imagined the meaning and operation of colonialism.
