AAS 3400 - Changing Worlds, Making Tradition: Culture and Identity in South Africa

Students will have a unique opportunity to explore another culture that of the Venda region in South Africa with linguists from that region. Students will work with visiting faculty to consider the forces shaping Venda culture today. In particular, we will discuss the ways in which indigenous knowledge is constructed and contested in contemporary Africa, and the intersections of this practice with post-colonial thought.
