AFRICAST 303E: Infrastructure & Power in the Global South (ANTHRO 303E, HISTORY 303E)

In the last decade, the field of infrastructure studies has entered into conversation with area studies, post/colonial studies, and other scholarship on the "Global South."

AFRICAST 348: Religion, Radicalization and Media in Africa since 1945 (AFRICAST 248, HISTORY 248, HISTORY 348, RELIGST 230X, RELIGST 330X)

We examine how Pentecostal Christians and Reformist Muslims in countries such as South Africa, Nigeria, Sudan, and Ethiopia have used multiple media forms- newspapers, cell phones, TV, radio, and the internet- to gain new converts, contest the authority of colonial and post-colonial states, construct transnational communities, and position themselves as key political players.
