Religions, Conflicts and Slavery in Africa: Case Studies
The analysis of African main realities will be presented through selected case studies that will focus on interconnections and interrelations between religions, politics, power, conflicts, slavery, and ‘traditional’ African cultures. The object is identifying key instruments of reading and re-reading multiple methodological perspectives. To this regard, it is important that all students become familiar with the bodies of academic literature dealing with African politics. It is these, together with the pronouncements and writings of African leaders, the articulations of African citizens and civil societies, and the views of international actors that comprise the discursive formation inspired by Africa and within which Africa sits.
