CANCELLED – History and Competition in the Horn of Africa
April 2, 9, 16, 23 (Thursdays)
Reports of military ventures in Northeast Africa are all over the news. U.S. troops operate from bases in Somalia, U.S. drones fly from Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, multinational naval forces monitor piracy and U.S. military construction battalions are building a network of roads into the continent. This class steps back from current events to learn about the history and people of the region, the way modern boundaries have emerged, and the growing international interest in the countries of Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti, and Somalia.
