Students taking this course will be encouraged to reflect on how anthropology is both part of the history of colonialism and of empire. Through a range of case studies drawn from around the world, the course will consider how the history of anthropology is related to the histories of those who inform the discipline. Students will also ask how anthropological knowledge can be used to critique colonial histories. The course is taught through lectures and tutorials which allow students to develop a deeper, practical and applied understanding of the topics raised in the course.
