The "Self" in Self-Determination: Personhood & Peoplehood in Empire & Decolonization
CHUM 303
Fall 2023
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: HIST 358

This seminar course will explore the historical literature on self-determination and decolonization movements in the twentieth century across the globe. Combining the fields of US imperial history, international history, global indigenous studies, and diasporic studies, this course will delve deep into the historical development of right of self-determination within and outside of imperial regimes. It interrogates how peoples articulated their sense of "personhood" and "peoplehood" to claim political rights within the borders of nations and empires, as well as on the international stage. The course will also explore how decolonization as a concept transformed beyond the realm of law and personhood and encompassed culture, the environment, and lifeways.
