HST 364 - Empire & Decolonization


4 credits
Guides students through an examination of the phenomena associated with the dismantling of colonial possessions after the Second World War. Within the historical context of the post-war ascension of a global order emphasizing territorial integrity and self-determination, former colonial territories pursued several strategies to emerge as sovereign nation-states. We look at obstacles to decolonization, strategies of anti-colonial (liberation) struggle, and culminating transformations to independence and self-determination. We also examine legacy structures such as neo-colonialism, imperialism, and cultural hegemony as they impact more recently decolonized nation-states. Case studies from sub-Saharan Africa and Asia will be employed in order to compare decolonization processes and results. Prerequisite(s): Junior standing or above or HST 111  or IS 250 . (Cross-listed with PS 364 .)
Grade mode designated on a CRN basis each term. Students should consult current term schedule.
