Decoloniality, Feminism, and Human Rights
FGSS 316
Spring 2022
Section: 01  

Is decolonialism only about flag-burning, taking a knee, and bringing down statues of colonial figures? The course will study anticolonial critiques and theories about historic and current settler colonialism and connect these with the prevailing racial, gendered, and economic imperial order. Key classic texts will be studied about how former imperial powers continue to neocolonize the world through tax havens, as well as by leveraging the concept of human rights and often at the expense of gender rights. Specific case studies will be examined to illustrate the range of activism and global creative protests that widen the paths to a decolonized feminist future.
