HIST 001W. First-Year Seminar: Promised Lands: European Settler Colonies 1830-1962


This course explores European settler colonialism in Africa (including Algeria, Angola, and South Africa), Southeast Asia (including Indonesia), Oceania (Australia), and elsewhere in the 19th and 20th centuries. Students will analyze the practices and lived experiences of the European imperial project while considering topics such as intimate relationships; notions of self and identity; and economic, political, and physical domination.
