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 configuration 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 unfinished 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?
Some of the courses she has taught include:
- Understanding Frantz Fanon
- Global Racialised Migration in the 20th-to-21st Centuries
- The Politics of Modern Muslim Mobility
