Postcolonial Studies (Seminar)

Inhalt: Post-colonial theory is about the consequences of Europe’s encounter with the rest of the world since the sixteenth century, as seen from the perspective of the “post-colonial” countries. Readings and activities are focused on how economics, politics, sociology, and ecology of the world changed as a consequence of the cultures that spread around the world since the seventeenth century. Classics of Post-colonial Theory start with authors such as Edward Said, Frantz Fanon, and Benedict Anderson. I will bring my interests in Southeast Asia and East Africa, and ask students to discuss other areas and interests based on their interests. Particularly relevant will be the ethical underpinnings of governance, politics, and trade in the establishment and maintenance of colonialism.
