Spring 2022 not offered
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Caribbean Studies Minor|
Why does colonialism matter to the fields of American studies, Latin American studies, and Caribbean studies? What have been the consequences of colonialism for the nations that make up the Western Hemisphere? This course offers a transnational, hemispheric approach to the study of the Americas through a comparative analysis of colonial ventures and their consequences. With a focus on the interactions of Indigenous, European, and African peoples, the course introduces diverse theoretical and methodological approaches to a range of issues and topics, such as franchise colonialism and settler colonialism; the organization of production, including state labor systems, chattel slavery, and indenture; governance and colonial bureaucracies; the formation of colonial cultures and syncretic belief systems; independence movements and the emergence of nation-states, as well as decolonization struggles.

Re: Permission of Instructor (POI) approval: this course is usually offered just once a year, each Fall. For Spring 2021, this section of AMST 200 is being offered as an overflow course for students previously enrolled in the course in Fall 2020 who agreed to defer, enabling a small class size for those who remained. The remaining spots will be decided by the instructor, giving priority to prospective AMST majors who will be on study abroad in Fall 2021. Students interested in enrolling in the course should also send an email to the instructor: firstname.lastname@example.org explaining their circumstances no later than November 12 at 5pm ET. Also, be sure to click "Add to My Courses" and "To request a POI electronically, click here" to submit your request. POI approval will be granted by the instructor during pre-registration through the Electronic Portfolio. All POI decisions will be made by November 15th at 5pm ET.
