Decolonial Theory
PHIL 358
Spring 2023
Section: 01  

Decolonial/Post-Colonial theory has always been a creatively different way to approach topics of social justice. This course has four parts. The first quarter will be both about defining what post-colonialism is through foundational texts, but also differentiating its methodology from liberalism and Marxism. We will then apply this knowledge by looking at how decolonization/post-colonialism feminism thinks differently about equality and freedom. In the second half of the course, we will focus on contemporary and cutting-edge readings on how decolonial/post-colonialism can help us think differently about our degraded environment and the looming climate crisis. The third quarter of the course links together Indigenous sovereignty and environmentalism, and we end the course with a look at the new internationalism about climate justice.
