Description

This class will provide an opportunity for history majors to complete a capstone research project in the context of an advanced seminar on the rapid demise of European empires after World War II. Our collective readings and discussions will discuss the broad history of decolonization in many parts of the world, but we will focus on specific cases from the British and French empires in Africa and Asia. We will also pay attention to to the extent to which the end of Europe’s empires was related to the politics of the Cold War. We will conclude our discussion by looking at the legacy of colonialism and decolonization in contemporary Europe and in former colonies.

Course Requirements:

Capstone research project with intermediary assignments.
