Foundations of Afrikan=Black Thought

$280.00

The Afrikan=Black Thinkers Program aims to introduce students to the core principles, modes, patterns, and history of thought and knowledge production in Kemet and the Kmtwy World, from Antiquity to the present. In designing the program, we are cognizant of the fact that training as students of the Afrikan=Black Studies would be incomplete without a proper understanding of the Afrikan=Black worldview in its various manifestations throughout the Afrikan World and the principles which undergird these various manifestations. As such, students will acquire familiarity with rich and profound interdisciplinary literature throughout space and time and also acquire pertinent evaluative criteria and organizing principles to assist in engaging the literature

Description

Course Description and Objectives: The Afrikan=Black Thinkers Program aims to introduce students to the core principles, modes, patterns, and history of thought and knowledge production in Kemet and the Kmtwy World, from Antiquity to the present. In designing the program, we are cognizant of the fact that training as students of the Afrikan=Black Studies would be incomplete without a proper understanding of the Afrikan=Black worldview in its various manifestations throughout the Afrikan World and the principles which under-gird these various manifestations. As such, students will acquire familiarity with rich and profound interdisciplinary literature throughout space and time and also acquire pertinent evaluative criteria and organizing principles to assist in engaging the literature.Thus, in the core course entitled Foundations of Afrikan=Black Thought, students will:

  • Acquire an understanding of the worldview under-girding Afrikan=Black Thought and Philosophy and how it fundamentally differs from the worldview, thought and philosophy of others (non-Afrikans)
  • Develop an understanding of fundamental tenets found at the core of the Afrikan=Black Worldview and how this worldview has been manifested in African Thought throughout space and time
  • Explore the relationship between common fundamentals of worldview on the various and diverse expressions and manifestations of African culture along several dimensions
  • Become familiar with innovative approaches to the study of Afrikan=Black Thought

Format: This course will combine lectures, discussions, and class presentations as the form of teaching. We will be having one or two guest lecturers during the semester to give lectures on specific topics related to their area of specialization. There will also be at least one field trip to enable you practically experience what we have learnt in class
