What was colonialism? And, of equal importance, what is colonialism? In response to these questions, this class turns to literature, media, and philosophy to ask after the bonds between colonialism and contemporary issues of migration, extraction and environmental degradation, globalized labor, and algorithmic justice. By exploring a diversity of interrelated contexts in the Global North and South alike, students will be equipped with the vocabulary and writing strategies to rigorously analyze, compare, and contextualize these issues alongside artists and thinkers including Aimé Césaire, Mati Diop, Fiston Mwanza Mujila, Achille Mbembe, and Frantz Fanon.
