Heart of Darkness Timeline Research LibGuide - Case: Home

Assignment Overview

Students will create a timeline chronicling the history of the Congo (focused on the Belgian Congo) from about mid 1500-present day.

In the text, Heart of Darkness, Africa has largely been parceled off into the control of European countries, so to help you understand the scramble for and colonization of Africa, specifically the Congo, you will be creating an annotated timeline that details significant elements of the region’s history that will enable you to see more clearly the orderly and proud history of the region before Europeans arrived and the fractured and turbulent period after their arrival and control of the land.
