Description

Making sense of today's globalised world means understanding the history and continuing impact of colonialism as well as recognising the intersections of race, gender, class, sexuality and religion. This subject decentres Europe and focuses on the impact and legacies of colonialism in regions such as South Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australasia, South East Asia and the Pacific. Students study many perspectives, such as the following: colonised Indigenous peoples, invading settlers moving to the countries of the colonised, anti-colonial political and military struggles, 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.
