Images of Africa

John Reader compiled a remarkable history of Africa in his book Africa: Biography of a Continent (1996). We will use this volume as a central reference for our consideration of the origins of various Anglo-American images of an incredibly diverse continent and its people. In addition, we will examine recent fictional and non-fictional texts and films to explore the effects of these images on current perceptions of African politics, culture and environment.
