Islam and Christianity entered African societies which were saturated with indigenous religions, belief systems, and ritual practices, and further connected to complex political and economic systems. Africans made Islam and Christianity their own through ¿translation,¿ ¿articulation,¿ ¿acculturation,¿ ¿adaptation,¿ ¿syncretism¿, ¿conversion¿, ¿revival,¿ and ¿revolution.¿ Muslim and Christian communities provide key avenues into the gendered social, political, and economic histories of Africa. This course examines Islam and Christianity in various contexts such as African state formation, international trading networks and diasporas, slavery, abolition and emancipation, European imperialism and colonial modernities, nationalism, social revolutions, and fundamentalist movements. The course begins with a survey of early Christian and Muslim communities in Africa, traces the expansion of Islam across North, East and West Africa, examines the indigenization of Christianity in Central and Southern Africa in the 16th century, explores select African Christian and Muslim diasporas, and evaluates scholarly approaches to the study of African Islam and Christianity between the 19th and 21st centuries.
