Study type Taught


This course offers an exploration of the cultural manifestations of colonial conquest, national identities, anti-colonial resistance and post-colonial struggles. Students have the opportunity to study these interconnected histories from the beginnings of European imperialism to the present day, and to choose from modules offered in the Departments of English, History, Politics and History of Art, and in the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies. The range of modules allows for a comparative understanding of different forms of imperial rule, and encourages a comparative approach to African, Asian, Irish, Middle Eastern and Pacific responses to the experience of colonisation.
