What remains of decolonization today as a political project and intellectual intervention into a world that empires made? This interdisciplinary course explores the postcolonial and decolonial turn(s) in the humanities and political theory. Beginning with the anti-colonial intellectual traditions that sought to forge a post-imperial world, we trace how post-, de-colonial, and anti-colonial theories have theorized key concepts like state, nation, culture, land, subjectivity, and the body.

Readings include: Frantz Fanon, Amilcar Cabral, Mahatma Gandhi, Kwame Nkrumah, Gayatri Spivak, Edward Said, Robert J.C. Young, Dipesh Chakrabarty, Homi Bhabha, Arturo Escobar, Chandra Mohanty, Gurmindar Bhambra, Saba Mahmood.
