Course Description

Africa is the target of political attention by international actors (including Italy and Europe). Challenging simplistic interpretations and stereotypical representations, this Seasonal School provides participants with advanced tools for a critical understanding of key political dynamics, which, starting from the African continent, shed light on global dynamics – e.g., migration, violent extremism and extractivism. The learning objectives of the Seasonal School thus include:- Developing a critical, interdisciplinary view of challenges and opportunities arising from dynamics of transformation and conflict in Africa- Familiarizing students with cutting-edge analytical perspectives for the study of diversity and social change that are derived from comparative-historical sociology, post-colonial and gender studies (including immersive and digital ethnography and audiovisual media)- Enabling the acquisition of the theoretical knowledge and essential skills that are relevant to a variety of professional domains and careers.
