Description

What was the role of law in the history of European colonial empires? Was law a source of justice or a tool of domination in the colonial context? How has colonialism shaped our understanding of legal concepts such as sovereignty, citizenship, and international law? This course explores the role of law in the global history of colonialism. We will consider the uses of rule-of-law ideology in justifying colonial rule and in unraveling it, the negotiation of race and gender formations in the legal arena, and the circulation and transformation of legal concepts and institutions across empires. Given the intersectional nature of legal history scholarship, this course is as much a history of social life under colonialism as it is a global intellectual history of the political in the age of empire. The examples are geographically drawn from all over the colonial world, with a temporal emphasis on the high colonial period in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Intended Audience:

First-year students; students who need to meet the FYWR.
