The global Brandeis commitments to social justice, sustainable development and arts and culture have special meaning in the university’s connections to sub-Saharan Africa and the Afro-Atlantic world. Courses on “The Political Economy of Southern Africa” and “Francophone African Literature” explore the contest of ideas across the continent. Brandeis students immerse themselves in communities from Cape Town to Dakar, where they seek ways to contribute to battling poverty, disease and injustice under the guidance of local mentors. Additionally, visitors from Africa bring to our community new perspectives on such topics as sustainable environmental practices and the power of women to create music and change.
