Cursusdoelen
  • Students will acquire knowledge of and insight into a number of key debates in postcolonial studies, particularly concerning post-colonial Europe.
  • Students are able to discuss the implications of these theoretical debates for the analysis social life, power and inequality in European societies.
  • Students are able to discuss how these scientific and social debates apply to their own lives and surroundings, and more generally to Dutch society.

 

Inhoud
This course explores the notion of a postcolonial Europe. What happens when we bring insights from postcolonial studies to bear on Europe? In what ways can we trace the formative influence and lasting presence of the colonial in contemporary Europe? How does a postcolonial Europe imagine itself, and how do such imaginations influence border regimes, nationality laws, integration policies and everyday understandings of self and other? How can we understand differences in postcolonial trajectories in Europe?
In order to debate these questions, this course will introduce a number of key texts on the following topics:
  • Postcolonial Europe? Where is Europe? What does the 'post' entail and what happens when we frame Europe as postcolonial?
  • Europe and its borders
  • Colonial histories and race in Europe today
  • The role of religion and secularism in postcolonial settings
  • Decoloniality
  • Hospitality and its Others: migration from a postcolonial lens
  • Diversity and inequality in the city
  • Heritage, material culture and the postcolonial
Each session will be chaired by a lecturer with expertise in this specific field. Each theme will be introduced by a lecture, followed by presentations and discussions. All students are expected to actively participate in these discussions and demonstrate an ability to apply theoretical debates to current social debates and realities, as well as to their own lives.
