Race, Nation, Empire, and Education
EDST 364
Spring 2023
Section: 01  

This course engages students in developing frameworks for understanding the historical and contemporary role of education in race-making, nation-building, and imperial projects. We focus on how educational processes shape the material, cultural, social, and political aspects of people's lives, and how these contend within a changing global landscape. Topics include education's dual role in settler colonialism and its potential for decolonization; scientific racism and discourses about intelligence; institutions of higher education and their entanglements with slavery and imperialism; education in colonial and post-colonial settings; legislating bodies and intimacies among young women of color; and education as a site for producing hegemonic notions of ideal citizen-subjects.
