Description

This course focuses on one of the most recent developments in the social sciences, namely postcolonial theory. The course will have three parts. The first part will analyze the multiple theoretical and methodological origins of postcoloniality. The second part will proceed with a discussion of its prominent themes, centering on the intersection of power and knowledge with race, class, gender, queer and environmental analyses. The third and final part focuses on formerly colonized spaces where postcolonial theory has been most relevant, both non-Western (South America, Africa, Asia and Middle East), and Western (within Australia, United Kingdom and the United States).

Course Requirements:

The course requirements include several in-class presentations of readings and a final paper.
