Inhalt This course is aimed at presenting modern-day society of Ghana, with a special focus on the northern area of the country. The division between the northern and southern sectors has been long sustained through a number of factors, such as ethnic diversity, colonial influence, climate and agriculture, as well as religion. In the first part of the course a general outlook on the history, politics, economy, natural environment and ethnic and linguistic diversity will be provided. Further, we will focus on the issues shaping the society of the four northern districts. Addressing such topics as developmental aid, climate change, migration, modernization and gender, the course will contextualize the segmentation of the country. Emphasis will be placed on complex relationships between the indigenous groups, ethnic identities, rituals, social organization and kinship in everyday life. Case studies from lecturer's own experience will serve as basis for deeper discussions. Furthermore, the course will aim at locating Ghana among other West African countries and societies.
Basic and advanced anthropological terms will be used and explained.
Lernziele Knowledge about the modern-day northern Ghana.
