Semester Frühjahrsemester 2020
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Andrea Kaiser-Grolimund (andrea.kaisergrolimund@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The denomination Swahili derives from the Arabic word sawahil and refers to the “people from the coast” in East Africa. Over the past millennium, the Swahili developed into distinctive urban, mercantile, cosmopolitan communities through their intermediary position between their mainland neighbors and traders, religions and colonial forces from Asia, Arabia and Europe. Swahili culture cannot be captured as something fixed but rather as a repertoire on which people draw, depending upon location, historical time but also social context (Caplan 2013). This proseminar explores different aspects of these shifting and plural cosmopolitan Swahili worlds. Apart from a historical overview the proseminar examines current ways of life on the East African coast and beyond. Hereby, a particular focus lays on Swahili medical pluralism and the use of a pluralistic health setting where biomedical treatment meets “traditional healing” as well as Dawa ya Kichina (Chinese Medicine).
Lernziele -Students are familiar with the historical background of the Swahili in East Africa
