African Conceptions of Time and Periodising African History


Sunday 9 October 2022, 7pm-9pm (London)

In this course, we will explore time in the African experience and how this affects how we divide up Africa’s history.

You will get an overview of traditional ways of marking time in African cultures, how early historians writing in Arabic and later historians writing in English divided up Africa’s past, and the effect that colonisation has had on how we divide up and tell African history.
