Post-colonial Politics (Research Training)
This course is designed to facilitate a critical awareness of the theory and practice of postcolonial studies in the contemporary world. Key concepts considered include hybridity, power and resistance. In this context students explore the assumptions, theories and practices that have defined traditional studies of relations between developed and underdeveloped states, and the alternative conceptualisation provided by a postcolonial perspective on international relations.
