Sub-Saharan Africa: Facts, Fictions, and How I Figure It
New!

This overview course is an opportunity for participants to explore sub-Saharan Africa through maps and statistics, fiction and non-fiction, photographs and stories.  We will cover - however briefly! - geography, natural resources, and climate change and their implications; various trends in populations and cultures; politics whether ancient, colonial or modern; and arts and industry.  This course is a chance for participants to gain a deeper, integrated understanding of a place many of us only view from a distance.

Instructor Bio:

Dr. Ruth Walkup is a cultural anthropologist who was born, grew up, and has worked for many years as an adult in sub-Saharan Africa.  She is excited to put a new OLLI course together to explore a world that she loves and loves to share.
