History of Architecture I

This course examines histories, theories, and politics of architecture in, of, and
from the Africa continent and its global diasporas. It uses a multidisciplinary
approach with a range of conventional and unconventional sources to
re-examine hegemonic (hi)stories of architecture towards extending or
countering them. We will study various examples ranging from relatively
well-documented, celebrated, and monumental examples of architecture to
the more mundane, easily-overlooked, and often-forgotten. Although focused
on Africa, the aspects of the built environment and peoples’ experiences with it
that we explore through this course extend geographically and thematically
around the world.
