This seminar critically examines the scholarly phenomenon of postcolonialism in relation to the recovery and writing of Indigenous and colonised histories, and the related political struggles of Indigenous peoples around the world. The seminar will be an introduction to debates within the body of postcolonial and Indigenous studies scholarship with a focus on measuring the significance and implications of colonial pasts on the practice, methodologies and theories of historical scholarship. Through case studies of postcolonial and Indigenous histories, the seminar will encourage students to think and write critically on the political implications for Indigenous and colonised peoples of current scholarly and historical debates.
