This seminar considers the scholarship on African urban life during the twentieth century. We read recent works about intellectual and cultural history, infrastructure and technology, political economy, urban planning, and media. In consultation with the instructor, students spend the last weeks of the course developing a study of a specific African city based on a mix of secondary literature and a dedicated primary source.
