Summer 2017: June 30 - July 30, 2017
Wayne State University students will have the opportunity to travel to Ghana, the former 'Gold Coast' in Western Africa. The program aims to increase the participant's knowledge on the emergence of cities in Ghana by looking at the creative adaptations of urban works, leisure, popular culture, politics, conflict, gender, generation, and race. Students will attempt to answer a number of questions: When and how did the city emerge in Africa? How African is the city? What do African cities look like? How have Africans responded to the dramatic historical changes and intense cultural interactions of African history?
