History has traditionally been understood from a western perspective, but why is this the case? What might the perspectives of colonized peoples contribute to our understanding of global processes? This course will use case studies to explore the various ways in which indigenous peoples have resisted and reformed dominant discourses of colonialism, as well as examine anthropology’s role in these movements.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
This course will explore contemporary colonial expressions from an anthropological perspective. It will be split into two main themes: Material Histories; and Mediated Histories.
