AT2008: COLONIALISM RE-IMAGINED (2014-2015)

Last modified: 28 Jun 2018 10:27


Course Overview

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.
