HS 373 - Contesting Empire: Nationalism and Decolonization in the Afro-Atlantic World

(3.00 cr.)

Examines the various ways Black and African thinkers and activists imagined their futures at the end of World War II, and what they did to realize these visions. Students consider the influence of several intellectual and cultural movements, as well as the key events that sparked a broad, collective call for the end of empire in the middle of the twentieth century. Students end the course by considering how the dreams and opportunities of decolonization either narrowed or closed, and why in the decades that followed the exuberant 1960s. Closed to students who have taken HS 357.

Prerequisite: One HS 100-level course.
Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring
Years Typically Offered: Varies
