AAAS 210. Brazil and Africa: Atlantic Encounters. 3 Hours H.

This is a survey course on the history of the relationships between Brazil and Western Africa from the sixteenth century onward. We examine the shape of the Atlantic world, the nature of the Portuguese empire in Brazil and Africa, the presence of Brazilian born agents in Western Africa, the cultural exchanges, the impact of colonial rule, and the responses of indigenous societies to these developments. Among the topics to receive attention are Brazil/Portuguese slave trade; slavery in Western Africa, urban and rural context of African slavery in Brazil; the family and religious life in both sides of the Atlantic; Brazilian communities in the coast of Africa; the abolition of slavery; and the long lasting relationships between Western Africa and Brazil. Students develop familiarity with major historical concepts, themes, and subjects. The course also aims to explore history as process to make sense of the past and the present. (Same as HIST 210.)
