OU Honors College professor Dr. Andreana Prichard is teaching a Presidential Dream Course titled “Africa and the ‘Urge to Help’: Humanitarianism in Historical Perspective.” The course and the accompanying public lectures interrogate the complex and sometimes ironic history of “humanitarianism” in sub-Saharan Africa. Experts on this topic will be delivering talks on mission “voluntourism,” on the motivations behind “helping,” on the idea of basic income grants and giving cash to the poor, and on the 2014 Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
The three remaining lectures are scheduled:
November 9 at 4:30 pm in Gould Hall Gallery
Dr. James Ferguson (Stanford University), “Presence and Social Obligation: An Essay on the Share”
November 28 at 4:30 pm in JJ Rhyne Community Room Zarrow Hall
