Cursusdoelen
This course aims to allow students to:
A) develop knowledge of postcolonial theories that are relevant for understanding our contemporary global world;
B) analyze and discuss representations of gender, ethnicity, and diaspora in colonial history, postcolonial literatures and films, and media;
C) formulate research questions, locate and interpret sources, and assess the significance of one’s own research within the framework of current transnational debates;
D) gain confidence in reporting research findings in both oral and written forms.
Inhoud
This course is for students in the RMA Gender Studies and GEMMA; students from the RMA programmes Musicology, History, CLS and MAPS should check with the course coordinator before enrolling. Only this way participation can be granted. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator by yourself.

The seminar aims to broaden understandings of key “issues” pertinent to postcolonial theory today. It engages with a range of themes and topics (e.g., gendered conflict zones, transnational migration, public intellectuals, cinema and visual culture, environmentalism, humanitarianism, social networks and digital identities among others) that are at the chore of our twentieth-first century. We will deal with ‘issues’ related to postcolonial critique, transnational feminist theories, migration and conflict studies, cinema and visual culture, digital media, and cultural theory, amongst other fields. In doing so we will be especially attentive to how race, ethnicity, diaspora, gender and sexuality are represented and conveyed in the face of colonial history and how they continue to structure and inform understandings of postcolonialism today.
