Ghana - Chains
Course Description: 
This course explores the complex connections between Christianity and the North Atlantic slave trade by: 1) studying and visiting the Cape Coast slave castles, as well as other landmarks and institutions of the slave industry in Ghana; and 2) examining and interpreting historical, literary and religious texts related to slavery. We consider the way European and European-American Christians justified slavery—consciously or unconsciously—through their interpretive and institutional practices. We also examine the perspective of African writers on the effects of Christianity upon indigenous cultures and social institutions.
