This bibliography of sources was compiled in support of a graduate history course designed by Professor Mohamed Mbodj. The course emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to the history of cartography, Western imperialism, and geographical boundaries as they relate to West and East-Central Africa. African, Arab, and European concepts of "mapping" will be explored in depth, along with a general history of the modern geography of Africa. Consisting mostly of printed publications, the bibliography provides a foundation for the class readings, research, and discussions which focus on the Senegambian region, the Niger valley, and the Nile valley from around the 14th century of our era to the late 20th century. Book chapters and journal articles are not included in this list. The location and holdings of titles available at Columbia University Libraries, including the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library, are indicated.
