Założenia (opisowo):

Good English, including comprehension and some conversational skills.

Skrócony opis:

The lecture concerns the area of present-day Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. The lecturer focuses on the 19th and 20th centuries history. The period before 1800 will be addressed as long as it is prerequisite to understanding more recent processes and events. The lecture will cover politics, economy, society, culture as well as contacts between East Africa and the outside world. The lectures on pre-colonial history (until 1888) will mostly deal with transformation of the polities and economies of the region, large-scale migrations, long-distance caravan trade, and the international context of the political developments. Special attention will be paid to the Sultanate of Zanzibar and the ways the polity shaped the societies of the interior. The resistance against and the adjustment to the colonial order, as well as modernisation of the African life and its consequences will be the central issues under scrutiny during the lectures covering the period 1888-1960.

The resistance against and the adjustment to the colonial order, as well as modernisation of the African life and its consequences will be the central issues under scrutiny during the lectures covering the period 1888-1960. While the region in question will be treated as totality, the independent states that emerged after 1960 will be addressed separately due to the fact that they chose different paths of development and coped with different problems.
