
In the twentieth century, anti-colonial and anti-racist movements in Asia, Africa, and
the Americas appeared to be radically remaking the modern world. Yet the creation
of new and politically independent nation-states was only one stage of
decolonisation. The con guration of global power is still unequal. The ways in which
we think and engage in the world continue to be marked by a colonial past and
present. Yet alternative possibilities have been and are being imagined and
practiced.
Situated across the disciplines of Politics, History, and Sociology this introductory
course examines the un nished business of decolonisation. The course will:
1. Introduce students to key ideas in decoloniality, post-colonialism, Marxism,
gender, and ecological studies.
2. Analyse the historic contexts of political decolonisation.
3. Ask how are our everyday lives impacted by colonial legacies using the example
of race, gender, and desire?

Learning outcome
To understand how the current world system has developed over a period of 500
years of colonialism, slavery, and exploitation, making modernity and coloniality two
sides of the same coin.
