L97 GS (IAS) 4154Decolonization to Globalization: How to End an Empire3.0 Units
Description:The course examines questions of contemporary relevance by revisiting the history of European empire and decolonization in South Asia: Is the US an Empire? Have we deliberately or otherwise supported US Empire? Did the history of European empire "train" some people to further American imperial interests over the twentieth century? Is the Empire over? Independence from European colonialism was a victory for some people, although for the majority, the experience of nation-building and the Cold War only sanctioned further inequities. A further set-back arrived in the guise of US centered Globalization. The countries of Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri-Lanka have grappled differently with the many varieties of twentieth century transnational power. This course studies the histories of decolonization, nation-building, the Cold War and Globalization for those South Asian countries created since the 1940s. By considering the possibility that the US Empire is facing a radical collapse, the course delves into new and novel ways by which South Asians have interrogated, accepted, resisted and possibly overturned the multiple levels of power unleashed upon them since the formal end of European colonialism. Modern, South Asia. PREREQUISITE: Prior coursework in history or permission of the instructor.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
