REL 272 - African Traditions

Description
What can we know about the religions of sub-Saharan Africa before the advent of Islam and Christianity? How did those two traditions take shape on the continent and how have Africans contributed to the growth and development of their respective traditions? How do people of African descent in the Diaspora imagine their historic and ongoing connection to Africa today? This class aims to answer these central questions while removing Africa and Africans from the margins of our discussion of religion and exploring their centrality to our pasts and presents.
