We are interested in ways that instructors find to include Abina and the Important Men in their teaching. Below you will find a sample course syllabus making use of the book. We invite you to send your syllabi in to us so that we can share them with other instructors and teachers.

History 609/Anthropology 609: The African Past

Professor: Trevor R. Getz

Course Description: History 609/Anthropology 609 is an introduction to study of African pasts. While it focuses on the methodologies employed by historians and anthropologists to jointly interpret the past, it is open to students from all disciplines. The course interweaves three related tasks: interdisciplinary skills and methods, narratives of African experiences and perspectives from the past, and the relationships between contemporary Africans and their pasts.
