This seminar will provide an introduction to the social, cultural, historical, and economic aspects of colonialism for first-year students. We will begin with a discussion of the origins of modern colonialism, focusing on the conquest of America. We will then explore the differing colonial models and projects established by different European powers in Asia, Africa, America, Oceania, and the European "treaty ports" along the Chinese coast (Hong Kong, Qingdao, etc.). The course will also compare the development of overseas colonies to the westward expansion of the United States in the 19th century and to the 20th-century U.S. dependencies in the Pacific and the Caribbean. Some of the specific topics covered are the role of European missionaries, travelers, and scientists in colonialism, the long-term economic, psychological, and cultural effects of colonialism on the colonized, and the depiction of colonialism by writers and artists on the sides of the colonizers and the colonized.
