Intersectionality and Decolonization: Methods and Theories

Instructor: Professor Julia Emberley.
Winter Half Course.

Students will study several approaches to intersectionality in the context of decolonialization movements across the globe, particularly from the mid-1950s to the end of the twentieth century. Students will examine various forms of cultural production, postcolonial theoretical approaches, and themes of "race," gender, sexuality, and (dis)ability, related to decolonization in North America, Australia, and New Zealand. Examples of theoretical materials may include works by Homi Bhabha, Kimbele Crenshaw, Jacques Derrida, Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault, Edward Said, and Gayatri Spivak.
