Description

Making sense of today's globalised world means recognising the continuing impact of the flows of people, ideas and trades, as well as the conflicts, generated by colonial power relations. Decentring Europe, this subject focuses on the innovations of and challenges to colonialism in regions around the Indian and Pacific Oceans, linking Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, Australia, SE Asia, and the southern Pacific. In colonial politics, sexual relationships often demonstrated the entanglement of gender and race in the most momentous conflicts over identity, labour, trade or borders. To explore these themes, students study in depth many perspectives, including those of: colonised indigenous peoples, invading settlers moving to the countries of the colonised, anti-colonial political and military struggles, and diasporas, the populations dispersed by invasion, slavery, indentured labour and voluntary migration. Students deepen their knowledge of the political, economic, social and cultural processes of colonial expansion, imperialism and their links to contemporary global relations.
