This is part of our Campus Spotlight on Brandeis University. This class uses an anthropological lens to explore the cross-cultural encounters, clashes, dilemmas, and representations of colonialism and post-coloniality in sub-Saharan Africa. The focal point will be British colonialism, but there will be some comparative discussion of other colonialisms, particularly French and Afrikaner. Through an anthropological approach to colonialism in sub-Saharan Africa, we explore radically different cultural assumptions European and African regarding matters ranging from religion, health, property ownership, gender, the body, and even love. Also in an anthropological vein, we will examine how colonial inequality was grounded in meaning-making, including racial and racist ideologies and colonial misunderstandings of the sociocultural arrangements they encountered in Africa.
The geography of North Africa has been reasonably well known among Europeans since classical antiquity in Greco-Roman geography. The Cape of Good Hope was first reached by Bartolomeu Dias on 12 March , opening the important sea route to India and the Far East , but European exploration of Africa itself remained very limited during the 16th and 17th centuries. The European powers were content to establish trading posts along the coast while they were actively exploring and colonizing the New World. Exploration of the interior of Africa was thus mostly left to the Muslim slave traders , who in tandem with the Muslim conquest of Sudan established far-reaching networks and supported the economy of a number of Sahelian kingdoms during the 15th to 18th centuries. At the beginning of the 19th century, European knowledge of the geography of the interior of Sub-Saharan Africa was still rather limited.
The Great Trek Afrikaans : Die Groot Trek ; Dutch : De Grote Trek , starting in in southern Africa, was a mass migration of Dutch-speaking inhabitants of the British-run Cape Colony , who left the Cape and travelled eastward by wagon train, into the interior of the continent, in order to live beyond the reach of the British colonial administration. Both the Cape Colony and the area newly colonised by the migrants later became part of what is today the country of South Africa. The Cape of Good Hope was first colonised by Europeans in , under the auspices of the Dutch East India Company also known by its Dutch initials VOC , which established a victualling station there that year to give its outward-bound fleets fresh provisions and a harbour for refuge during the long sea journey from Europe to Asia. This came about because the VOC released some employees from their contracts to save on their wages, instead offering them grants of farmland in exchange for their commitment that they would stay on the African continent for at least 20 years, and would cultivate grain on their land for the Company warehouses.
