Course Information: May be repeated if topics vary. Prerequisite: A college course devoted entirely to criticism or consent of instructor.
The Settler Colonial Turn - Settler colonialism now circulates as a critical framework across a range of disciplines as it reorients how we understand arrival and dispersal, possession and dispossession in the global north and south. This class will offer an intersectional analysis of settler colonial studies as it has developed through postcolonial studies. Readings will draw from and situated through interventions from indigenous studies, queer studies, feminist studies, technology studies, and critiques of antiblackness as they shape the political, historical, and contemporary understandings of race, place, and nation within the United States and Canada in particular, with attention given to other geographies as well.
